The African version of the friendship bowl, this iconic product comes in sizes ranging from tiny to enormous and they are available in a variety of glaze finishes. The Ubuntu Bowl depicts a circle of women holding hands around the rim of the wheel thrown pottery bowl in a spirit of unity. They wear their traditional headscarves and have their babies tied to their backs in typical African fashion.
It is a complex Nguni word that means “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.
“I am what I am because of who we all are”
In Africa, the definition of an individual is community based and not individualist. The Ubuntu bowls with their women holding hands in a spirit of Ubuntu, represent this philosophy.
