Sculpture and Ceramics Exhibition: More Artists

Ceramics, with it's contradictory nature, reflects something human back to us.  Simultaneously resilient, formed and strong, also vulnerable, uncertain and receptive.  The featured ceramic artists in this exhibition capture the beauty, essence and diversity of clay whether in a functional form or purely as ascetic sculpture. And not just clay either.  Bronze, wood, wire and paper.

Tania Babb captures fleeting personal moments in her sensual sculptures, John Bauer with his unique porcelain plaques which bare witness to the magic that can emerge from introducing textural elements such as lace, coins and woodblocks.  Lisa Firer graces us with her beautifully embellished, layered porcelain vessels with Cape Fynbos motifs.  Giovanna Biallo's sculptures with their classical forms are colourfully playful, including Hennie Meyer's distinct earthenware vessels with their subtle curves and hints of colour.  Sandy Godwin will exhibit her light, lace inspired clay creations and Diane Harper will show her  decoratively painted and embossed plates.

Well-known foundryman Etienne de Kok will feature a few of his bronze castings, including an "moveable maquette for a moving fountain" and Friday Jibu from Bronze Age Foundry will be exhibiting a selection of incredible carved wooden skulls.  To name a few more this post.  

To view more fabulous ceramic and sculptural artworks come join us on Wednesday 4th July at 6pm for an exciting evening at Kalk Bay Modern.
