Conversation starters (starters as in starters before the main meal)
 
The umbrella explanation for the ceramic plates that I create can briefly be described as the lost art of dining.  It is utterly convenient getting caught up in the everyday rat race of just living, therefore age-old traditions - such as sitting down and eating or sharing a meal together as a family - had to be put aside to make space for working late or being active on social media whilst stuffing ourselves with fast food.  Each plate tells its own story, whether it is ages old, current, trending or even a homage to certain individuals.
 
The combination of the blue willow pattern and certain icons portrayed on these plates pays tribute to a time where the unity around a table wasn’t quite uncommon.
 
These plates can be seen as an individual conversing with the viewer, ultimately filling a void, becoming a conversation we would never have.
 

Potter of the month


November 2017


Sharon Mitrie opened her own pottery studio in Pretoria in 1977, soon after she obtained her Ceramics Diploma in 1976.  Just before she started out on her own, she spent three months working with Gillian Bickell in Fourways, Johannesburg.   
During her pottery career Sharon has completed many private commissions such as table ware of all descriptions, wash basins, murals, miniature planters, plaques, vases and various odd requests for commodities made from clay.  
Teaching is an ongoing passion and as her aim was to master the potter’s wheel, she enjoys sharing her knowledge and expertise of this skill to others.

 Her exhibition opens on Sunday 5 November 2017 at 10h30 for 11h00 and runs until Wednesday 29 November 2017.
