Dear Zizi,

Here is a picture of your wonderful bowl in our home. We picked it up from customs last Friday.

So it brings a little bit of the spirit and warmness from South Africa to the cold part of northern Germany 🙂

Thank you very much for your hospitality and we hope to see you and Andile (also warm greetings to him) in summer in Hamburg.

Dear Andile,

Thank you for coming to meet me on Saturday and for your email – well done on selling your pot.

I would like to come back this Saturday to see your shop and pots again this time with my wife. I will then make a decision. From our Funds perspective we invest long term in contemporary art where the artist has a good secondary market for his/her art. I know that ceramics are not traditionally easy sellers in a market dominated with paintings etc, but I do like your style of art. You mentioned a Museum has been buying your art, do you have more detail on that ?.

Let me know,

Kind regards.


Hi Zizi,

I wanted to let you know that the piece arrived. Please see two pictures attached to see it in its new surrounding.

Hope to be able to come again to Cape Town.

Kind regards.

Dear Zizi,

The vase arrived this weekend! I’m having a great time finding just the right place to display it. Thank you!

Hello Zizipho.

Wow wow wow! The piece just arrived in perfect condition and it has surpassed all my expectations. It is truly wonderful and I’m so happy to have it in my home! Many thanks!

Best regards.

Thank you very much, Zizipho.

The piece looks well wrapped and hopefully it will arrive in one piece to our home.  I will keep you posted as soon as we get it delivered.  I am looking forward to owning such a beautiful work of art.

I hope to see you when you come to New York.

Dear Zizipho

It was lovely meeting you at Imiso last week.  I love the pot we bought of yours and you’ll be pleased to know that it has made it safely back to London in one piece!

With kind regards

I am privileged to have two pieces of your great work in my collection. Please let me know if anybody in JNB stocks your art.

Good morning Samantha,

Thank you so much for the prompt reply. This email made me so happy, I am in love with Zizi’s designs and I have been telling everyone about how unique work.

Will you be so kind and tell me the dimensions of the vase, I know it would be a rough estimation as it is not made yet. I want to ensure it is a good size. I like the size of the red vase I purchased while there so I was assuming it would be within those same perimeters.

Thank you so much Samantha!

Cher Monsieur, chère Madame,

On January 14th 2017, we bought a beautiful ceramic artwork by Majolandile Dyalvane and we would very much appreciate if you would send us the picture you took, (Mrs Zizipho Poswa, my husband and myself holding the piece) So we could joint it to the one we took in January 2014 with Mr Dyalvane, us and the first piece we bought at that time.
