Zizamele Ceramics is about making art that makes a difference.

Not only to the buyer but to the lives of the sellers and the artists too. Zizamele Ceramics is a SMME that trains previously unemployed (and often previously destitute) artists in ceramic creation, life skills and business management.  While South Africa has no shortage of extremely talented artists, the challenge lies in finding ways for them to use these raw skills to create a better life and a sustainable income.  This is where Zizamele comes in.

Zizamele artists create highly sought after and collectable ceramic pieces that can now be found in homes, offices and galleries around the world.  Buyers of Zizamele’s award-winning pieces range from the Office of the Premier of the Western Cape to gift shops around South Africa and is increasingly exporting to international stores and galleries.

Zizamele offers two product ranges: Zizamele and Protect US.  “Protect Us” is a sustainable range of ceramics and textiles which aims to create awareness around the endangered animals of South Africa. Children using our products will hopefully be inspired to protect these animals before it is too late.  Read More …
