Description/

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.

‘uThunjana’ is often a term used in isiZulu to refer to the last-born child: literally the last piece of the “family collection”.

Smoke Fired Terracotta.
