As a pair of bowls, this piece is perfect for fruit and pit pairings such as cherries or olives. Given together with a jar of some of South Africa’s excellent preserves, this makes a truly special gift!
Each of these bowls is wheel thrown from stoneware clay with skill and care. Painted with a variety of brightly coloured glazes, the bowl’s lady wears her traditional headscarf and has her baby tied to her back in typical African fashion.
“UMUNTU ngumuntu ngabantu”
It is a complex Nguni word that means “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity.”
“I am what I am because of who we all are.”
In Africa, the definition of an individual is community-based and not individualist. Zizamele’s Ubuntu pieces represent this philosophy.
