This Ubuntu Bowl has two hand-modelled African lady figures who face one another as if in joyful conversation. They have their babies tied to their backs in typical African fashion and wear their traditional headscarves.
Each of these bowls is wheel thrown from stoneware clay with skill and care, and hand-painted with electric blue glaze.
“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 express this philosophy.
