I’m a former Durban University of Technology student. I graduated with a National diploma in Fine Arts in 2011. I was born in the early eighties raised by my grandmother Doyi Luthuli.
In my work I use ceramic vessels (izinkamba) as a premise to challenge, question, comment on certain aspects of rules and laws that serve as guidelines when creating ceramic vessel. Furthermore, I use them to comment on social and personal aspects of my life. My vessels are designed with a variety of angular, straight and geometric patterns that make reference to amasumpa.
In essence my work subverts and challenges the traditional cannons of vessel making. I achieve this by playing around with essential elements of traditional domestic vessels, such as the form of the vessel, shape, size and the inconsistence of a design on the surface of the vessel. I am mostly interested in the design the shape and the form of the vessel which gives a voice to my work.
