I feel the most exhilarating tingle of delight when I am see my work together with South Africa’s premier ceramists. It is so amazing to see my platter in such a gorgeous display at the Corobrik National Ceramics Biennale at the Rust-en-Vrede Gallery in Durbanville Cape Town. I wish I could be there in person to view the stunning work up close and personal. I feel totally inspired!
I love to create beautiful things and go around experimenting with my materials never quite knowing where I will end up. I do not feel the need to compete with other ceramists; we are all creatives with our own story to tell. Yet seeing my plate on this wall has given me a great feeling of accomplishment.
To make things more awesome, Kate Malone is presenting a workshop. She is an internationally acclaimed ceramist and a presenter from the Great Pottery Throw down. She is visiting South Africa and she selected the Biennale award winners.
An important part of my life is being a member of Ceramics Southern Africa.
The new Ceramix Stoneware range is moving my creative mind-set in a whole new direction and I wonder what I will be making this time next year.
What would you like me to make?
