August 3rd First Friday Night  5pm-9pm
Zulu Pottery Demo & Trunk Show from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Thembi and Jabu Nala will be demonstrating their pottery methods as well as selling their unique pottery. They are potters from KwaZulu-Natal, S. Africa, having learned from their mother and grandmother. Using traditional techniques, they hand coil the forms and embellish with symbolic designs. The pots are then burnished with a river stone and fired to make make them deep brown to black. Although many of their shapes are based on the beer pots that have social and religious significance, the sisters have also received world recognition for their innovations in form and design.
