These handmade earthenware ceramic calabashes are available in either red, light brown or black painted light brown clay. The stoneware pottery items are glaze fired after being glazed and hand painted and glazing. The black and white pattern on the rim of the calabash is inspired by Intsimbideco, traditional Xhosa necklace design. Each calabash has a unique variation of the Intsimbideco design.
Most items are made to order, and take up to approximately 3 weeks to be ready for posting, as the ceramicist shares a kiln and potters wheel with three other artists at the Gompo Arts Centre.
- The calabashes are available in three sizes, which do vary slightly for each product as they are handmade. The sizes are approximately: Small – H: 7.5cm Diameter: 13cm; Medium – H:10cm Diameter: 13cm; Large – H:12cm Diameter:16cm.
- Bulk orders are welcome but may increase the production timescales.
