So Much To See at the Month of Ceramics

So Much To See at the Month of Ceramics
November 19, 2014 Clementina

There is so much to see at the Month of Ceramics – on NOW –  in and around Cape Town!

 

Iziko Slave Lodge is hosting a ceramic exhibition – The title of the exhibition is From African Earth: Celebrating our Clay Vessel Heritage. This exhibit is an exhibition of ceramic vessels from various parts of Africa, including South Africa. It is comprised of the following components: a selection of historical hand-built, pit-fired African vessels from the Iziko permanent collection, alongside a selection of contemporary vessels created in the same genre by ceramic artists who are members of Ceramics Southern Africa (CSA) countrywide. The contemporary vessels will be selected through a process managed by CSA/WC, with the aim to locate the finest vessels reflecting elements of African vessel making. The heritage vessels will be selected from Iziko’s rich collections to represent as many regions in Africa as possible, and will include ancient Egyptian vessels, vessels from middle and east Africa through to southern Africa. A new stamp series featuring ceramic vessels from Iziko’s collection is to be launched at the same time, and the works appearing on these stamps will be incorporated in the exhibition. CSA registered World Design Capital project: #WDC577
