Zulu pottery- tall vase
Zulu pottery tall vase black, measures 16.5 cm diameter, 20 cm height
Zulu pottery is made of a clay called ibumba, which is dug out of the ground and left to dry in the sun. It is then ground in a mortar and passed through a sieve to remove stones. The traditional ukhamba pots are made of dried fine clay, but the bigger pots are mixed together with other types of clay to ensure they are more solid.
