Here’s a wonderful opportunity to see some of what’s emerging out of South Africa, including Zulu pottery and Master Weave ‘telephone’ wire baskets and photography by Garth Meyer (hopefully, I’ll have names for the ceramicists and weavers soon)

One thought on “South African craft in Sydney”

  1. Thanks Anthea. Here are the details:

    The weavers include:
    MASTER WEAVERS Simon Mavundla, Zodwa Maphumulo, Alice Gcaba, and respective family members who are rapidly being recognised as prominent emerging
    weavers: Nomvuselelo Mavundla (Simon’s wife), Hlengiwe, Thembinkosi and Ntombifuthi Maphumulo, and Octavia Gwala.

    And softwire woven works by Siyanda community members, ZenZulu trademarked works developed by Marisa Fick-Jordaan.

    POTTERY by Jabu Nala and Thembi Nala – both daughters of Nesta Nala who is credited with reviving the Zulu beer pot pottery tradition, Clive Sithole and Ian Garrett who are doing very interesting work with and upon the tradition.

    And Garth Meyer, black and white photography. Garth is also a film maker and has twice won Best SA Short Film in recent years.
