A Potter's tale in Africa is a celebration of Andrew Walford, his pottery and life in Shongweni KwaZulu-Natal. The tale follows a long tradition of ubumba, this is a Zulu word for clay, used in the production of ceramics. Andrew adds to the richness of the ubumba tradition. He may come from another tradition, the Anglo Oriental, but he has been influenced by the minimal decoration of Zulu artefacts. It is very Zen. Andrew has been a potter for 50 years. He manifests this Zen influence in his brush strokes which are minimal and subtle.
