a fabulous article on CLEMENTINA CERAMICS at The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Cape Town in the September issue of The Property Magazine page 15

Hennie Meyer - a Cape Town based ceramist whose work is on show at our shop at The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Cape Town - has recently completed a most impressive architectural project which consists of several very large ceramic panels which were commissioned for the reception area of an Indonesian hotel. Quite a competent technical feat, and very appropriate aesthetically for the interior where they are now installed.
An interesting ceramic exhibition coming up in Cape Town - Andile Dyalvane, Katherine Glenday, Christina Bryer and Zizipo Poswa. These artists have been engaged in conversation for some time, exploring their respective histories with clay. Their installation shows a passion for the earth which they work with, it touches on their deepest childhood memory, it acknowledges their ancestry and weaves a picture of their appreciation for one another and for their country.
Exciting to see some ceramics with content and meaning. So many ceramic pieces are lacking this dimension...
You can also see the work of Katherine Glenday and Christina Bryer at our shop Clementina Ceramics at The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Cape Town. Andile Dyalvane and Zizipo Poswa have work on show at their own shop, Imiso Ceramics, also at The Old Biscuit Mill.

The tea set for the Five Roses Sanlam Fashion Awards is finally finished. The challenge was to make something that looked contemporary and related to fashion, incorporated the Five Roses association and had a romantic touch. (It also had to be utilitarian!) This will go off to Johannesburg on Monday...
