This hand painted ceramic pot pays tribute to Harriet Tubman (b1822 - d 1913), who was born into slavery and escaped to freedom, becoming an American abolitionist and "conductor" on the Underground Railroad . As a child, she suffered a head wound, which caused dizziness, pain and hypersomnia throughout the remainder of her life. Despite these disabilities, she was able to conduct over a dozen rescue missions, bringing approximately seventy enslaved people to freedom.
These ceramic pots are hand painted and glazed here as part of our UCP Seguin Made initiative. These show the skill of people with developmental disabilities that are employed at Seguin Gardens & Gifts. Creating jobs for adults with disabilities provides not just employment, but increased independence and self-confidence as individuals learn new skills.
Your purchase allows our employees with disabilities to live more creative, meaningful and independent lives.
