Inspired by a recent trip to the Karoo and Northern Cape in South Africa, Andile Dyalvane pays homage to elements of nature. Such as the beautiful landscapes full of camel trees, weaver birds nests, and large boulders.
The ceramic table Yenkonjane (Of The Swallows) is an extension of this study, referencing the flat, sandy, boulder-filled landscapes Dyalvane encountered on his travels. Some of the boulders Dyalvane came across had started to form little “bowls” on their flat tops (which you can see when you climb them and stand on top). In this recesses, water would collect, allowing for local birds to drink from them.
