Earthenware pots on loan from the Social History Collections

Iziko Museums

The metalwork on The earth is watching us exhibition is exhibited alongside earthenware pots which have been collected across the African continent and are on loan from the Social History Collections of Iziko Museums. The combination of the woven wire vessels and the earthenware pots highlights the traditional working relationship between metalsmiths and potters in Africa.
