A master of hand-thrown ceramics, Chuma Maweni’s distinctive approach combines contemporary hand-coiled shapes marked with precisely patterned incisions.His blackened ceramic works are pit-fired with the same techniques used by Nguni tribes before him, their dark, porous surfaces, striking silhouettes and smoky scent established him as a distinctly contemporary ceramicist dedicated to his craft.

The term ‘nozala’ means parent; these pieces gave birth to Maweni’s signature teardrop-shaped vessels and conical pots. This work’s shape is inspired by a beer pot.

Smoke Fired Terracotta.
