NEW to the site:  Zizamele Ceramics

We just received an order from The South African Zizamele Ceramics, founded in 2008 by Toni Burton who taught ceramics skills at a local college, creates highly sought after and collectable ceramic pieces that can be found all around the world and is increasingly exporting to international stores and galleries. Members of Zizamele have their own ceramic specialty developed after Toni taught an 18-month long job creation course in craft production.  

The Ubuntu Bowl, an African version of the friendship bowl, features female figures holding hands around the rim in a spirit of unity, wearing their traditional African headscarves with their babies on their backs. In Africa, the definition of an individual is community based thus the word Ubuntu represents “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity.”

These stunning pieces will be available at www.swahilimodern.com

Each bowl is unique and tells a story.
