The name, Iziko Lokubasela, means ‘the place where you make fire’ and, with the optional African mask, is a reminder of the fireplaces’ ethnic origins.
Each piece is hand made and decorated by African craftsmen. The ceramic is press moulded then hand sculptured. Certain models are decorated with ethnic markings then each Iziko is kiln fired to 1200°C and allowed to cool naturally. This process, combined with the unique properties of the specially formulated ceramic ensures against cracking during use.

When the Iziko has cooled, it is hand painted with coloured glaze, rapidly heated to 1100°C then plunged into wood shavings. When it has cooled to around 750°C it is doused with water withstanding thermal shock far greater than incurred in day to day use. This technique gives each Iziko its uniquely individual aesthetics and characteristics.
