Zizipho is inspired by the richness of her South African natural surroundings. Her love for nature’s beauty … its flora and fauna is evident in her designs and delicate execution of the Imiso Hand-pinched Ceramic Collection of decorative bowls and plates.
Andile Dyalvane (founder)
Andile prides himself as being South African and this is evident in his patterning, forms and choice of colors. Clay gives him the ability to create something beautiful, valuable and useable with the four elements: Earth, Water, Fire and Air.

As dreams, ideas and inspirations morph into images … sketches form and colors are visualized …then throwing, coiling, casting, molding, glazing and firing, the dream is defined … to be remembered and appreciated.
