Rika Herbst's profile on Ceramics Now Magazine - View her works

“If my work is to speak I want it to whisper. In this my aim is to create unique pieces for contemplation and enjoyment. Nature is my source of inspiration and delight and it plays a significant role in my work.

The shadows cast by the interplay of light are an integral part of each piece and through this I want to give my work a contemporary feel whilst enhancing the quality of the clay.  Paper porcelain is versatile and allows me to constantly push the boundaries of my work.

I worked with glass initially before turning my full attention to clay, first as a hobbyist and then full-time from my studio which I opened in September, 2003.  During this time I have worked tentatively and experimentally with porcelain and felt it possessed the very qualities I needed to create the desired texture.

Porcelain is a difficult medium in which to work, but I found it a very rewarding challenge.  It has a welcome degree of unpredictability but when the results are good, I feel that our partnership is a successful one.

My work was exhibited at various CSA Regional and National Exhibitions and also showcased at Decorex 2009 in the SA Handmade Collection where I was selected as one of the Ikons and tribute was paid in the field of South African Ceramics. In October 2010 a piece called “Singing Trees” was awarded BEST PORCELAIN PIECE at the biannual CSA National Exhibition.  In April 2011 a piece called “Sickel Bush” was selected for the 9th International Ceramics competition Mino, Japan which will be held in September 2011.  In June 2011 a piece called “Deep forest” was selected as a finalist in the Gyeonggi International CeraMIX Biennale 2011 International Competition in Korea.” Rika Herbst

    Jasmin Rowlandson's profile on Ceramics Now Magazine - View her works

    “The core inspiration of this body of work is a celebration and dedication to the immense beauty and fragility of the natural world.

    My sculptures are explored from a feminine viewpoint and inspired by my relationship and fascination with nature, the land, water, and the environment.

    Current inspirations stem from places that captivate and hold an emotional and visual pull, from certain areas of coast, reef, field, and wood.  To the uninhibited growth of corals, lichens, mosses and fungi. The eroticism of unfurling flowers. The awakening of seeds confident of their purpose. The wild places under log piles housing micro worlds.

    I’m exploring the rare, the everyday, the endangered, the ordinary and the spectacular.

    My work is made from porcelain paperclay and terracotta paperclay. One of the many qualities of clay that I embrace is its capacity to hold movement and energy. By Working with a paper clay of my own mix these qualities continue to resonate once the work becomes ceramic thus enabling me to create my desired delicate, organic, fronded forms. I employ different methodologies of making depending on the requirements of the individual piece. Most of my work is hand built but I also work with paper-thin sheets of clay and some press moulding techniques.” Jasmin Rowlandson

    Read the interview with Carol Gouthro, Artist of the month - May 2011

    “I have a strong interest in natural forms, cultural artifacts and personal mementos. I am drawn to ornament, embellishment, pattern, and texture. For the last ten years the vessel forms in my ceramic work have slowly been evolving into botanically inspired hybrid sculptural forms. In working on these pieces I have become more involved with the details, the close ups, the abstract, the peering into. My interest in detail, layers and encrustations has been heightened by repeated travels to India and China. I am fascinated by the complexity, diversity, beauty and danger of the natural world and this leads to thoughts about growth, nourishment, attraction, and sexuality. Built into these hybrids are some of the artifacts and mementos that form my DNA.” Carol Gouthro
