My Work on a Stamp!

One of my vases dating back to 1991, entitled Urn for Colonial Ashes, which is currently part of the ceramic collection at the Iziko Museum of South Africa, was selected as a limited edition of postage stamps depicting South African ceramics. The South African Post Office has highlighted a selection of South Africa’s finest ceramic vessels from pre-colonial to contemporary times in this edition of stamps.
My vessel (bottom left stamp) subtly references social and political conflict in South Africa by way of a collage of applied images, juxtaposed with bright on-glaze painted African designs. The angular shape of the vessel conveys a sense of disjuncture, loss and threat.
The stamps are available from post offices countrywide at R30 per stamp booklet and R18 per envelope and online from   Enquiries can be sent to
