I was selected as one of eleven ceramists, the first fellows of Ceramics Southern Africa; we were honoured at the opening of the current Gauteng regional exhibition in Johannesburg. The exhibition opened at Museum Africa last Sunday, during which each recipient received a certificate (image above).
'The first Fellows have been selected not only for the consistently high quality of their work but also for their commitment to Ceramics Southern Africa over the years' (National Ceramics, Number 93/Spring 2010; page30).The First Fellows of Ceramics Southern Africa include, John Shirley, Digby Hoets, Drury Brandt, Jerice Doeg, Dineke den Bakker, Elza Sullivan, Gail de Klerk, Minette Zaaiman, Wendy Goldblatt and Querardien van Vliet. Each fellow had to submit work for the Ultra-furn Regional exhibition; organised by CERAMICS Southern Africa Gauteng Region. I was requested to facilitate the display of the exhibition. For more information about the exhibition see invitation details included below.
Images of my work on display at the exhibition will be posted shortly.
