A completely personal and original range of concrete planters the Bhaca design reflects ceramicist Andile Dyalvane’s connection to his South African Xhosa roots while celebrating his mastery of an elemental material of choice - clay. He originally worked the designs in wet clay and then up-scaled them to cope with the rigours of being a large planter. The chosen work focuses on Andile’s signature scarification style reflecting the Xhosa tradition of cutting or marking skin – hence the name “Bhaca”, the Xhosa word for scarification.
Bhaca planters are perfect as sculptural statements in a garden or interior space. Finished in a fire-pit black, ash grey or a bleached white their scarification is applied on all sides of the planter. The twist of the form and the slashing strokes create a dynamic form making them ideal as independent pieces which can be seen from any angle. But set in a cluster they create a commanding spirit.
The innate desire to reconnect with nature is stronger than ever as we’re feeling more disconnected from it, which sparked the idea behind our new Home is Sanctuary range. Designed with homes, smaller spaces and apartments in mind and as a simple way for you to reconnect with nature and bring the outside in. The extra small bhaca is part of the Home is Sanctuary collection.
