The Ubuntu Bowl is the signature product of Zizamele Ceramics.  This is the African version of the friendship bowl. 12 African lady figures made from clay hold hands around the rim of the hand-thrown charcoal clay bowl. They wear their African headscarves and carry their babies tied to their backs in traditional fashion.

The geometric African patterns are hand-painted using white and metallic glazes. “UMUNTU ngumuntu ngabantu” is a complex Nguni word that means “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity” or in English,  “I am what I am because of who we all are."   In Africa, the definition of an individual is community-based and not individualist. The Ubuntu bowls with their women holding hands in a spirit of Ubuntu, represent this philosophy.
