Zulu ceramics play a central role in traditional Zulu ceremonies. Jabu Nala, from rural Oyaya KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, learned directly from her grandmother, Siphiwe, and her mother, Nesta Nala. Nesta became world renowned for her exceptional skill and artistry. Jabu Nala, along with her sisters Thembi and Bongi, continue in the family’s esteemed tradition.

Clive Sithole began ceramics after being inspired by the power of Nesta Nala's pots. He has since become well acclaimed in his own right, having won national and international awards. His pots are made in traditional Zulu coil building technique and then pit-fired. He often uses images of Nguni cattle on his pots to honor their spiritual importance in Zulu culture.

Jabu and Clive will demonstrate coil building, burnishing and embellishing of Jabu's traditional ukhamba, a ritual beer vessel that honors the ancestors, and Clive's unique forms. Please join us for this rare opportunity.
