Vuyisa Potina’s work is a delicate mixture of traditional and modern. This decorative stoneware bowl exemplifies that, the design is contemporary and the smoke firing methods are a nod to his Xhosa heritage. This lovely bowl has been named Nobomi, which is Xhosa for life. The light cream exterior is dotted with a double circle pattern, to which the smoke firing process imparts unusual shading, letting the beauty of the motif show through. Vuyisa personally crafts each piece, ensuring that no two are exactly alike.

Vuyisa Potina is a ceramic artist based in Franschhoek, South Africa. In 2002 he casually began working with clay and upon realizing it was his true calling, Vuyisa received a scholarship to Boland College in order to further his technical skill. Each piece deeply reflects his Xhosa heritage and traditional smoke-firing methods, blended with a modern sensibility. Vuyisa allows the natural colors and textures of the clay to come to the fore, ensuring that his work remains original and one-of a-kind. In 2006 he was best in show at the South African Exhibition of ArtsCape and in 2007 the Cape Craft & Design Institute chose him as an icon. His work has also been exhibited in Germany, Portugal and Saudi Arabia.
