TAKE SHAPE

Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - NEWS -

In­spired by his time spent mak­ing fig­urines out of clay col­lected from hill­side iin­donga dur­ing his child­hood herd­ing cat­tle in the East­ern Cape, ce­ram­i­cist Andile Dyal­vane of Imiso Ce­ram­ics is show­cas­ing his much-an­tic­i­pated 100 IIn­donga Bowls col­lec­tion at this year’s 100% De­sign South Africa, where he has been named Fea­ture De­signer of the Year brought to you by ELLE DECORATION in as­so­ci­a­tion with 100% De­sign South Africa. The be­spoke bowls are char­ac­terised by crack­ing, lay­ered ef­fects that re­flect the eroded and col­lapsed ter­ra­cotta trib­u­taries – or iin­donga – that are cre­ated by the hooves of cows as their path­ways ex­pand in the rain. This not only speaks of the land­scape in which Dyal­vane grew up, but also pays homage to the four el­e­ments of life, which is some­thing the ce­ram­i­cist strives to do in all his work.
