the clay gods are smiling

Artistic inspiration is like a spirit. It whispers to us and motivates the Zimele team to create something new and special every day. Our pieces’ bright colours, creative interpretations of natural environments, and uniquely playful styles make customers worldwide smile.


We like to think the clay gods are smiling on our approaches as well.


Zimele’s artwork is functional and interactive, with a wide range of applications that includes kitchen accessories, soap dishes, vases, bowls, serving dishes, pots, candlestick holders, statues, as well as large statement pieces and customized commissioned works. Each one is unique and each one tells its own story.


We also want our ceramics to be accessible, so affordability is a cornerstone of our business model. With affordable pricing, you can build your Zimele collection and map your personalized intersection of art and nature in your home or office.

All Zimele artwork is signed and dated by the sculptor and painter, so you know exactly when your piece was created within our business’ historical timeline, and making the piece even more personalised for you.

Join us at our studio and gallery. Meet the artists, experience the creative process, feel the Zimele spirit.
