Bhaca S


A completely personal and original range of concrete planters the BHACA design reflects ceramicist Andile Dyalvane’s connection to his
South African Xhosa roots while celebrating his mastery of an elemental material of choice - clay. He originally worked the designs in wet clay and then up-scaled them to cope with the rigours of being a large planter. The chosen work focuses on Andile’s signature scarification style, reflecting the Xhosa tradition of cutting or marking skin – hence the name “Bhaca”, the Xhosa word for scarification.

BHACA planters are perfect as sculptural statements in a garden or interior space. Finished in a fire-pit black, ash grey or a bleached white their scarification is applied on all sides of the planter. The twist of the form and the slashing strokes create a dynamic form making them ideal as independent pieces which can be seen from any angle. But set in a cluster they create a commanding spirit.
