The KZNSA in association with the Phansi Museum presents a collection of clay vessels made in KZN, with some dating back over 100 years. These pieces have been drawn from the museum’s rich collection of over 5000 artifacts, however, it’s not only about historic works and some fine contemporary examples by ceramic artists Clive Sithole, Phumlani Nyawo, Astrid Dall, Rodney Blumenfeld, Thami Jali, Maggie Mikula and Frank Nthunya are included in the show.
