Each of these pencil holders is hand-formed from stoneware clay with skill and care. Painted with a variety of glazes and patterns, 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.
