  Phumlani Nyawo

Phumlani Nyawo's ceramic Pottery features traditional African and contemporary shapes and designs. Nyawo has been involved in art since 2006, but he says he learnt a lot from his brothers when he was younger and still living at home in Pongola.


"My brother's made the pottery and inspired me to get involved in art. I want to do art full-time as I'm passionate about it. I feel it's my calling. I'm always looking for new ideas and new shapes so I try to incorporate aspects of the modern world. I use traditional methods, but make the art modern. As I'm designing my pots, I draw inspiration from the people I have met and the things in life that motivate and interest me."
