2010 Ceramics SA - KZN Regional Exhibition

I recently participated in the KZN Regional exhibition of Ceramics Southern Africa, held at ArtSPACE durban. These are the works I submitted. The top row is a selection of porcelain "Wallflowers" and the bottom row are works from the 2009 series "Schema". I thought the combination of the two different forms worked quite well together as the textures on the pieces echoed each other.

I really enjoyed Naomi Klingenberg's work at the same show. Her organic, beautifully shaped seed-pod forms were interesting and a wonderful departure from the traditional vessel. The contrast in the textures on the forms were fascinating, from the burnished smooth surface of the body to the layered texture on the neck.
