This is the signature product of Zizamele Ceramics. The African version of the friendship bowl, this iconic product comes in sizes ranging from tiny to enormous and they are available in a variety of glaze finishes. The Ubuntu Bowl depicts a circle of women holding hands around the rim of the wheel thrown pottery bowl in a spirit of unity. They wear their traditional headscarves and have their babies tied to their backs in typical African fashion.
The word UBUNTU 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. The Ubuntu bowls with their women holding hands in a spirit of Ubuntu, represent this philosophy.
