Item of the day: Lady Bambanani Bowls

Recognised as a Cape Craft Icon, Zizamele Ceramics are etching their name into both the local and international design market. Situated off Kommetjie Road in Cape Town, their studio is a hive of activity. Their creations are a mixture of vibrant home-style decor with an African twist, and range from technicolour olive dishes to a big five collection of tea lights. Zizamele Ceramics is all about innovative creation in both their aesthetic privilege and economic responsibility. Headed by Signoria Solontsi, the team is comprised of artists from previously disadvantaged backgrounds whose raw talent is harnessed and refined through the guidance of dedicated mentors. Not only are their designs completely drool-worthy and functional, but by supporting their initiative, we encourage the development of a new scene of South African artists. We adore these bowls from their “white range”. Used for decorative measures or dressed down as practical service items, they add a hint of eccentricity to any home. Their neutral tones paired with their delicate detailing are sure to be conversation starters. They also make the perfect gift for those overseas relatives! The 6 Lady Bambanani Bowl retails at R850 and the 12 Lady Bambanani Bowl at R3,900 from Zizamele Ceramics, located on the corner of Chasmay & Kommetjie Roads, Sunnydale, Cape Town. 021-789-1491 zizamele.co.za
