South Africa creative pottery


A selection of South African ceramic artists, highlighting the rich diversity of their contemporary clayarts.



Donve Branch


Donvé currently works with kaolin and bastitle clay and uses primitive firing methods to explore the dynamic interplay of fire and earth that defines traditional African pots. She has been a South African Eastern Cape potter for over 45 years and has always loved the rhythm and focus that comes from throwing clay on the wheel. Her organic looking pottery features large burnished surfaces that allow her to explore primitive firing methods for her functional reduction wares. Donve likes to experiment with the many different forms of pit-firing and loves to test and  manipulate the vagaries of the delicate hues and serendipitous highlights that adorn pit-fired pots.
She has ran pottery workshops from her Port Elizabeth studio and was involved with Vlok Potteries but now concentrates soley on studio ceramics. She gravitates towards closed globular forms that are influenced by the functionality and strength of the wares of the rural potter. Donve is drawn to experimention with various combustibles, surface covers and chemicals combined with bisque fired vessels in open pits or saggers, subjecting the pots to single or multiple firings; driven by the desire to push the boundaries of her knowledge
Throwing pots of white earthenware that retain their European form, while pursuing the exploration of the relationship between clay and fire, that characterizes traditional African unglazed pots, defines her attractive pottery.

Lucinda Mudge


Lucinda Mudge’s vivid vases captivate the eye with their rich colours and intricate detail, quite often expressing a range of contemporary and historical sources that convey a complex narrative.  Utilising hand-mixed glazes and stains, each piece is as unique as the narrative it tells using a broad range of themes, images and text. She also likes to pay homage to other famous ceramicists.

Fruiting branch with NZ flax  —  Pat’s Ikebana

Qld, 2016

The traditional practice of the art of Ikebana was always approached with a mindfulness of the inner sublimity and is also known by the name ‘ofkado’ (way of flowers). Being originally developed by practicing temple monks, the spirit of ikebana has survived the centuries since its beginning and is embedded in Japanese culture. I have included a collection of ikebana arrangements from the Queensland Sogetsu ikebanist Pat Mackie, some examples from the Japanese artist Kawase Toshiro and ikebana created with ceramic vessels from the German ceramicist Jochen Ruth. Additional ceramic vessels that can be used for ikebana arrangements are also featured as well as some Indonesian ikebana form Lusy Wahyudi and friends.


Kawase-Toshiro Ikebana flowers

Kawase Toshiro ikebana, Japan

Spatial awareness is altered by our higher consciousness, which has a distinct and tangible perspective, and this zone is infused into the aesthetic composition of ikebana. The inner calm of meditation flows from a deconstruction of the habitual clutter of the mind and ikebana became a visual metaphor for this refined state of consciousness. Observation of the innate beauty of the natural world from a heightened perspective was also a key influence and encapsulating this into a simple artistic statement was an integral component of ikebana flower arrangement.


Ikebana - Dick-Lehman-pottery

The Japanese arts in general have been derived from similar influences to the approach with the ikebama arts and the subtle appreciation of balance and space is ever present. In Zen philosophy there are seven aesthetic principles for achieving Wabi-Sabi.
Yugen: subtly profound grace, not obvious, Seijaku: tranquility. Datsuzoku: unbounded by convention, free, Fukinsei: asymmetry, irregularity. Kanso: simplicity. Koko: basic,.weathered, Shizen: without pretense, natural.
It’s easy to see these qualities also evoked in the ikebana arts.The beauty of ikebana exists as a subtle reminder of the depth of aesthetics and balance in nature and is a fine vehicle for reflecting this with indoor decoration.

‘Flower Arranging and Tea Ceremony’ – Toyohara Chikanobu (Japanese 1838-1912)


During the Kamakura period (1192 ~ 1333) Ikebana became a form of meditation for Zen Buddhist priests. Floral offerings were placed in front of altars to honor the Buddha and the souls of the dead. These offerings evolved into floral arrangements designed to express the subtle harmony between spirit and matter. Arrangements were originally composed of three main lines of differing height together creating a three dimensional form – the balance between the lines symbolizing the unity between spirit, man and earth.

The warrior class or ‘Samurai’ brought great lifestyle changes to Japanese society during the Kamakura period, making it fashionable to display Ikebana arrangements in the homes of wealthy townsmen. Samurai would create Ikebana not merely as a flower arrangement but a short-lived structure reflecting man’s own mortality.

“Ikebana is a form of sculpture that exists only within a limited time span, transforms from moment to moment, then perishes.” — Akane Teshigahara

Samurai would live and die like an Ikebana form but their spirit was believed to be eternal. To reach a state of concentration and become centred, Ikebana was consistently performed by Samurai prior to going into battle. Through this connection with nature, the heart and mind were believed to be purified. Ikebana went on to gain substantial respect and appreciation by the imperial and military leaders of Japan in the Momoyama period (1573~1603), celebrated amongst the Samurai.

Clarice Cliff Art Deco: The André Aerne Collection


Here are some Clarice Cliff ceramic pieces featured in a Christie’s online-only sale of over 100 lots timed to coincide with the Living with Art live sale. Carefully selected by Mr. André Aerne of Charlevoix, Michigan, this collection of ceramics is being sold to benefit the Muskegon Museum of Art and includes a diverse array of the shapes, colors and patterns for which Cliff was famed.

Clarice Cliff Art Deco ceramics



Clarice Cliff was a prolific artist and produced many hundreds of designs during the inter-war period, but her style remains immediately recognisable. It’s not just the bright colors that makes Clarice Cliff’s ceramics look vivacious. There is a consistent spirit of joy that permeates her designs which express fascinating originality. She was one of the first females in the ceramic arts to launch a line under her own name. When Cliff first achieved her success in the 1920’s, there was little precedent for a young woman from a working-class family becoming a designer, and branding her work with her own name.

While Cliff was undoubtedly inspired by the Art Deco designs of the 1920s, she also looked farther afield for ideas — namely, the avant-garde movements of Cubism and De Stijl. Many of her wares have distinctly modernist shapes and visible brushstrokes, something that was discouraged from the usual lines of production and which demonstrates her pioneering vision. She made things that were designed to be used in the home — tea and coffee sets, candlesticks, vases, plates — but she also wanted women to have access to interesting and colourful things,’ according to Natalie Voorheis, ‘Not everyone would have known what the Cubists were doing but she was heavily influenced by them, and so it made its way into the homes of ordinary people.’

Modernist glass arts – Sweden



‘The Figure’  —  Edvin Öhrström (1906-1994), Orrefors, ‘Ariel’ Glass Vase


Scandinavia became a hub for glass production in the early 20th century, with Sweden at the epicenter. The traditional craft industries of glass, textiles, ceramics and furniture all experienced a modern design upheaval especially between the two world wars. Modernist artists were encouraged to become involved in the design and aesthetic modernization taking place and Sweden went on to be recognized internationally for its innovative direction. The manifestation of a design imperative that embraced the rubric of functionalism supporting improved housing decor and well constructed mass produced products became evident. The emergence of this design initiative was encouraged by a social climate that desired progress in the arts and the movement of ‘Swedish Modern’ became influential in defining this new trend.

‘Scarce trees in winter’ glass vase – Vicke Lindstrand



The clean, streamlined aesthetic of Nordic design was a natural fit for the modern glass arts, particularly the smooth rounded surfaces and  bold colours. The glass company Orrefors was founded in 1898 but made its mark on the glass industry in 1916 when Knut Bergqvist invented the “Graal” technique, in which clear glass was used to encase an acid-etched design to create what appear to be decorations inside the piece. Orrefors made a successful impression on the European market after an exhibition at the 1925 Paris Exposition. They had employed new art designers especially for this exhibition including Vicke Lindstrand, who also introduced more modernist styles to their design lexicon. The fascinating Lindstrand designs from his stint at Orrefors, and later when he joined Kosta, are some of the most popular Scandinavian art-glass items. The Swedish art glass company Koksta Boda had been creating Art Nouveau pieces including etched cameo glass and Art Deco style glass since the turn of the Twentieth Century and went on to produce a swathe of modernist designed pieces in the postwar era.
Even though the Swedish Pre WW2 glass designs exuded innovative boldness and a sophisticated grace, the vintage post war glass was produced in greater quantities and became more accessible and popular with collectors, due to its market penetration, volume and affordability.
