The humble Zulu beer pot has been raised to a new status as it becomes a decorative item.
Traditional Zulu beer pots called “ukhamba” in the Zulu language, are rimless pots made from fine clay and are produced by women throughout the KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa.
The use of the Zulu beer pot is an integral part of Zulu culture since ritual beer drinking takes place in every aspect of the customary Zulu life.
The patterns and decoration on the pots vary according to family and region. These days’ contemporary ceramics have been inspired by traditional Zulu pottery. White pots with ethnic designs are a favorite décor item.
