Andile Dyalvane, "Ngwanya III, Praise Name Series" Clay Pendant Light, 2016


Ngwanya III, Praise Name Series, 2016 White stoneware clay 19.5 x 9.75 x 9.75 inches 49.5 x 25 x 25 cm Signed M Dylavane 2015 Miso Ceramic "Ngwanya III, Praise Name Series" clay hanging pendant light by South African ceramicist Andile Dyalvane. Natural earth tones with accents of red and blue. Inspired by ancestral practices and motifs, the incised symbols that detail each work act as homage to the significance of scarification rituals in the Xhosa culture. Traces of these traditions appear in his ceramic forms, where he uses bolts and typewriter keys found in street markets to create elaborate surface impressions. Andile Dyalvane was born in Ngobozana, a small village in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa in 1978. He received a National Degree in Art and Design from Sivuyile Technical College in 1999 and a National Degree in Ceramic Design from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in 2003. He is the founder of Imiso Ceramics in South Africa’s Western Cape. He has exhibited extensively in South Africa and has been awarded residencies in Denmark, France, the United States, and Taiwan. Dyalvane’s work is in the permanent collections of the Iziko National Museum, Cape Town, South Africa; Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Museum of Art, Port Elizabeth, South Africa; and Yingge Ceramic Museum, Taipei, Taiwan.
