Madoda Fani (1975-)

Artwork by Madoda Fani

Madoda Fani began as a ceramic painter at the Potter’s shop in Cape Town where he would later begin producing his own work and ceramics would become his passion. Inspired by nature in all forms Fani uses the coiling technique to translating the shapes he sees all around him into delicate ceramic vessels. In 2000, Fani was invited to Le Salon International de l’Artisanat de Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso, where he was awarded the second prize in his category. Since then Fani’s delicately hand decorated pots have made their way into various local and international collections and he continues to exhibit in galleries in and around Cape Town.
