A tactile masterpiece in clay, the Bhaca planter from Indigenus perfectly captures the notion of functional art. Specialising in architectural pieces that are brought to life by local designers and craftsman, this South African brand is rooted in creating a deeper human connection with nature.
The vision of Xhosa ceramist Andile Dyalvane, this sculptural statement is brought to life by working clay through the ancient tradition of scarification. Cutting or marking the skin, the name ‘Bhaca’ is a literal translation of the craft that this beautiful planter represents. With each careful slashing stroke, a bespoke piece begins to form.
Having originally worked the designs in wet clay and then up-scaled them to cope with the rigours of being a large planter, Dyalvane is a true master of this material. With its versatile nature, you can choose to create a single statement or a curated cluster outdoors or within any interior scheme.
