Local Ceramics On Display At Decorex

For its 2018 pavilion at Decorex Cape Town, set to run from the 27th of April to the 1st of May 2018.


100% Design South Africa will bring leading local handmade ceramics to the fore with a striking exhibition concept, curated by Cathy O’Clery of Platform Creative Agency.

All the ceramicists participating in 100% Clay, have been asked to lend their stellar talents to the same challenge: each must present only one bowl, one jug, one cup and one plate. The idea is to allow visitors to delight in varying aesthetic styles while appreciating the versatility of this earthy medium and how age-old techniques can be used to such contemporary effect.

“For a long time I have believed that ceramic-making is a design discipline in which South Africa excels. Our artists and designers are renowned around the world but we rarely celebrate this in our own country with large collective exhibitions,” explains O’Clery.

“I would like the trade and public who visit the 100% Design South Africa pavilion at Decorex Cape Town to engage with the endless possibilities of what working with clay can achieve,” she continues, “so I have chosen everyday objects which people use.”

All the exhibition pieces will be produced especially for the exhibition and will have their debut at 100% Clay – in line with 100% Design South Africa’s focus on encouraging new designer products. Approximately 20 ceramicists have been selected to participate, including the iconic names such Clementina van der Walt and rising stars Vorster & Braye.

Visitors will experience both glazed and unglazed ceramics in a superbly restrained colour palette of white, off-white, black, grey, brown, terracotta, pale pink, celadon, gold and bronze. Expect a feat of clay!
