â€œFOR those who seek the sacred in ordinary, everyday lifeâ€, reads the sign in acclaimed ceramicist Clementina van der Walt's studio. Her new work is inspired by and celebrates the function of tableware. Her new range is rich with subtle colour and texture.
â€œHer respect for materials and historic ceramic techniques is evident in her adaptation of the 17th century Japanese oribe tradition of combining over- and under-glaze techniques,â€ explained Christopher Peter, Director and Curator of the Irma Stern Museum, where Van der Walt's latest range will be exhibited in December.
â€œPlates and bowls resonate with moss green, earth tones and fresh pinks in a marriage of organic and geometrical forms,â€ Peter added. Candle holders, in which the artist explores the translucent qualities of porcelain, will also be on show.
The works will be shown at the Museum from December 4 until January 4, 2003. All works will be for sale.
