Unusual pot. 6.5" high.

The Pottery Workshop started in 1968 with Danish supervisors (first Peter Tybjerg, then later Ole and Anne Nielsen) with founding throwers Gordon Mbatha, Ephraim Ziqubu, Bhekisani Manyoni and Joel Sibisi. Already expert ceramists from the neighbouring Shiyane-Nqutu region, Dinah Molefe and several women of her family joined the Pottery Workshop from the start as skilled hand-builders, accustomed to using traditional Zulu and Sotho coiling methods in the making of domestic izinkamba (beer pots). The gendered work-division in the studio's ceramics —women coiling, men throwing— has been maintained to the present.

Marked on the base with a very faint word (maybe 'handarbeit') and central inked stamp. And an inked number W-98.80 which might have been done by a museum or collector.
