I was rather excited this week when vases of mine featured on fab.com sold out almost immediately after the site went live with them. First time I have had work on an online store....most encouraging!

John Bauer ,Yogi de Beer, Paul de Jongh, Lisa Firer, Louise Gelderblom, Christo Giles, Ralph Johnson, Hennie Meyer, Nina Shand, Rebecca Townsend, Clementina van der Walt, David Walters, Sarah Walters
BEASTS OF BURDEN
Opening on Monday, 21 October at 18:00
Exhibition closes on 14 November at 17:00
In Still Life co-curated by Chantal Louw and Sarah Walters, a collection of ceramic objects by 12 ceramicists becomes a sculptural landscape. The curves and angles of the whole are read with clarity while the individual is displayed. Still life an exhibition of ceramic forms, some functional, some not, has been curated into an exhibition installation. The display allows the individual pieces to oscillate between functional object and sculptural form.
Jo O’Connor employs the Long Gallery with a collection of portraits. Using wood as the primary medium, the individual faces have been simplified, rendered in oils onto the wooden surface. The wood grain acts as both a support and a camouflage creating a tension whereby the individuals painted move between blending into the natural environment and being visible.
Robyn Denny presents Beasts of Burden in the Artsstrip. This series of work engages with the shock, beauty and pathos of the biological contingency. By evoking a theme of violence and brutality versus fragility and vulnerability, a dynamic paradox is animated through the use of ink & gouache.
These are my works for this exhibition. Although they look like 2 dimensional paintings in the images depicted on the blog, they consist, in fact, of individual ceramic vessels which make up an installation.
Titled Homage to Morandi I and II, they are inspired by the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi (July 20, 1890 – June 18, 1964 )and in a way, are Morandi-type paintings come to life!

In this crazy fast information-overloaded life it becomes a complete pleasure to encounter a tranquil and exquisitely beautiful space at The Lutge Gallery in Cape Town. Old wooden shelving, counters and tables lovingly restored, give a sense of depth and meaning and a reminder of quiet moments when life was more considered and contemplated. Our joint show - Christo Giles, Lisa Ringwood and I - is enhanced by the presentation and display in this extraordinary venue.
Opening tomorrow Thursday 3 October at 6 pm and on until 26th October.

Opening this Saturday 14th September at The Breytenbach Gallery in Wellington a group exhibition featuring artists who have made works inspired by Afrikaans literature. This is part of the Tuin van Digters festival.
Above are my mantelpiece vases inspired by the poet Jan F.E.Celliers - Here follows the poem:
Dis al – Jan F.E. Celliers
Dis die blond,
dis die blou:
dis die veld,
dis die lug;
en 'n voël draai bowe in eensame vlug -
Dis n balling gekom
oor die oseaan,
dis n graf in die gras,
dis n vallende traan -
