I first got into ceramics through my passion for bonsai. Ceramics plays a very important role in bonsai. The word bonsai literally means tree planted in a pot. In bonsai the pot forms an important part of the tree’s overall appearance. Therefore I am always looking for unique bonsai pots, unfortunately they are hard to come by in South Africa. So I started playing with the idea of making my own pots, which led me into the world of ceramics. My passion for bonsai is now partnered with my newfound passion for ceramics.
I am inspired by nature to create pots that have form, colour and texture that does not try to copy nature, but rather suggests the presence of nature in my thought process while producing each piece. I create each piece 100% by hand from start to finish.
