SJOE - NEW CERAMIC RANGE

Vases

Toast rack


Coffee mugs


Jugs


Oval dish

These are some examples of our new studio range called SJOE! - which means 'WOW!' in Afrikaans (one of South Africa's eleven languages) - and is pronounced 'shu'. We are having a launch at the studio this Saturday from 11am - 2pm.

In this range the forms are all hand-built in charcoal earthenware, sometimes with sprig decoration added. But mostly the surface detail is minimal. There are several glazes used, all monochrome, giving a somewhat gentle and meditative effect.
I am really excited about this work, it is quieter than my usual bright colours and patterns - another side to me I guess!

love the toast rack. I love to see ordinary, functional objects using different materials and mediums
