Africa | Nesta Nala (1940 - 2005) outside of her homestead with some of her traditional Zulu beer pots. The ukhamba -a smoke-black, thin-walled, round bottomed beer pot is still used in ceremonies by the Zulu-speaking people of South Africa. Thembi and Jabu Nala, the daughters of Nesta Nala, follow in their mother's footsteps by developing their pots for the urban craft gallery and collector market. | Image ©M. Vincentelli.
