Handcrafted in Southern Africa, each zulu pot has been hand coiled from clay, burnished and fired in an open pit in the open veld.
In the Zulu tradition, these pots are often used for brewing, cooking meat, storing water and grain and for drinking sour milk.
Zulu pots have moved from mainstream usage, to the high-end world of handcrafted collectibles. The patterns and decoration on the pots vary according to family and region. Usually one can distinguish two styles of decoration: incised decoration and raised decoration.
