Gallery Chaton


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


Potter of the Month:  Caroline Schulz Vieira

Caroline’s journey with clay began in 1982 and took on professional status in 1997 after a seven-year period at the Kim Sacks School of Ceramics, Johannesburg, which included a two-year apprenticeship.
 
Since 1997 she has taught both children and adults, and published a collection of pottery projects for children in collaboration with Vincenzia Diedericks.  She has participated in group exhibitions as a member of Ceramics Southern Africa, as well as at various venues in Johannesburg and elsewhere in South Africa.  Taking part at the Design Indaba 2014, and being invited to exhibit at 100% Talent (part of 100% Design at Decorex) in Johannesburg in 2016, were highlights.  She has also held three solo exhibitions, two at Bamboo Gallery in Johannesburg and one at Ebony/Curated at Franschhoek.
 
The artists states that she delights in the exploration of forms as carriers of a more personal narrative whose beauty stems from their simplicity and understatement, coupled with the feelings evoked by glazed surfaces that have undergone a trial by heat. Utility is given shape in her production work, aimed at the display and enjoyment of delicious seasonal foods, be it in a restaurant, or around a kitchen table at home. 
 
The exhibition will be opened by Pieter van Heerden on Sunday 4 February 2018 at 10h30 for 11h00 and closes on Wednesday 28 February 2018.
