Andile Dyalvane


Drawing equally upon his Xhosa heritage and his contemporary urban milieu, Andile Dyalvane crafts earthy and elegant ceramic works Andile works with three elements of life – water, air and fire – to transform the earthy clay into a range of beautiful ceramic masterpieces. 


Each of Andile’s creations tells a story of his Xhosa heritage: “My current inspirations are drawn from my immediate environment, inner city urban life and it’s relation to where I come from.” He stays true to his roots by creatively re-interpreting his cultural heritage into his ceramic pieces. The traditional Xhosa practice of ukuqatshulwa, or body scarification, influences his unique design style.
