Andile Dyalvane is one of South Africa’s most renowned clay artists. His work, which is guided by a deep spiritual connection to his Xhosa ancestors, showcases large-scale sculptural works. These pieces are a metaphorical vessel through which he seeks to honor his cultural traditions and share his journey of healing. His medium of clay or umhalba (mother earth) is at its most fundamental, a life affirming and sacred connection to the soil.
A member of the International Academy of Ceramics, Dyalvane has received residencies in Denmark, France, the United States, UK, and Taiwan, and shares his knowledge through master classes and workshops in South Africa and internationally. He is the recipient of the 2015 Design Foundation Icon Award.
