Zizamele Ceramics creates highly sought-after and collectable ceramic pieces that can be found all around the world.  Founded in 2008 by Toni Burton who taught ceramics skills at a local college, she then taught the present members of Zizamele on an 18-month long job creation course in craft production.  Product development and training is ongoing and each artist is encouraged to develop their own speciality.

Our products can be purchased online through our website or at our retail outlet, Stand D1, The Watershed V&A Waterfront, CAPE TOWN

Your intuition and positive thoughts worked!  My BEAUTIFUL new bowl is happily situated on my kitchen table.  It brings a huge smile to my face.  Thank you for all the care you put into making it and packing it for the voyage.

It has been a true pleasure to work with you, and I enjoy following your team on FB.  Special ladies doing special things.

I’m in your balcony cheering you on!  Please give the ladies my heartfelt gratitude.

Thank you,



My ladies arrived in perfect condition.  I will never forget your kindnesses in getting these too me – it wasn’t easy but I shall cherish them and think of you, in South Africa, with so much admiration and affection always.

Thank you.
