“The fact that every living thing has its day in the sun… it blooms, it fades… life goes on, regardless.” Ros Koch
“DAILY BREAD” SERIES
These works have been inspired by my walk/cycle to my children’s school and back. By choosing to focus on the positives, the beauty in everyday things, as a source of inspiration for my work
I have found being more mindful has been quite healing for me… encouraging me to keep my mind on the many good things in my life – the beauty in the small things – and finding sustenance in them.
The many flowers, trees and other plants. Their beauty but also their fragility. The change in seasons. The fact that every living thing has its day in the sun… it blooms, it fades… life goes on, regardless.
The Potters Place teaching studio is happy and excited to be Opening its doors in SOMERSET WEST. I have been teaching all things clay related for almost 30 years from my studio in Pretoria. When the opportunity arose for me to expand my business I decided that SOMERSET is the place where I would like to be.
The Courtyard @ The Bright Street Gallery was the perfect fit and everyone has been so helpful and accommodating and I am so thankful for finding this Gem of a place. The classes I will be teaching will deal with all aspects of clay,
HANDBUILDING techniques (pinching, coiling and slabbing)
WHEELWORK (utilitarian work as well as altered and assembly pieces)
SCULPTURE (figure, animal and abstract)
WORKSHOPS will include alternative firing techniques of: RAKU and OBAVRU (beer firing)
: MOULD MAKING and SLIPCASTING
: DECORATING TECHNIQUES e.g. printing and stamping on clay, bubbling, coloured clays and slip decoration.
I will also be doing tailor made workshops for teambuilding events and parties.
