Coming from two different countries, Zululand in South Africa and Botswana, the pottery represented here shares key characteristics:
The vessels are made for the production and sharing of ceremonial beer.
The "recipes” for making the clay and the methods of creating the pottery are cherished family secrets which are passed from mother to daughter.

Handmade pottery adds warmth and organic accent to any decor. These pieces look amazing displayed as a set of three.
