Ceramics Southern Africa National Chair

Betsy Nield

2012 Represents the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Ceramics Southern Africa! The existence and strength of our association is testimony to the efforts and commitment of past chairpersons, committee members, regional representatives and many others. Corobrik has been a major sponsor of our association since 1982, contributing to the development, growth and awareness of ceramics in Southern Africa. We greatly value and appreciate the financial assistance and the interest that they have taken in our association over the past three decades, including the acquisitions of the Corobrik Ceramic Collection. A special word of appreciation to Daphne Corregan, a ceramic artist from France, as the Award Judge, to Sue Sellshop as the roving selector and to all the other selectors in the regions for a much appreciated task! Organising and mounting an exhibition of this magnitude has always been a daunting task. On behalf of the members of Ceramics Southern Africa I would like to congratulate convenor, Jerice Doeg and her team from the Gauteng region for the professional way that they have executed this special event. Congratulations to the award winners and thank you for your participation and contribution to the success of this exhibition. May the diversity of this showcase of ceramics be an enriching experience!

Message from Corobrik (Pty) Ltd

Mr DJ Meyer (Managing Director)

There is something special about products rooted in clay, a material that has helped define civilizations and cultures and that touches on our humanity. We know that humanity and art are inextricably linked in defining heritage, and it is in this context that Corobrik is proud to be playing a part in building South Africa’s heritage through its sponsorship of the 40th National Exhibition of Ceramic Art and our investment in the Corobrik Collection of Ceramic Art housed at the Pretoria Art Museum. This National Exhibition of Ceramic Art is particularly important for the ongoing development of ceramic art. It not only brings together artists in open discourse on different techniques for the mastering of art through the medium of ceramic, but importantly explores and pushes the boundaries of the art into forms that we seek to preserve in the Corobrik Collection for students, practitioners, and lovers of ceramic art, to contemplate, appreciate and enjoy.

Pretoria Art Museum

Hannelie du Plessis (Curator)

First of all, congratulations to Ceramics Southern Africa on its 40th anniversary! The Pretoria Art Museum takes great pride in hosting your Corobrik National Ceramics Exhibition

2012. We hope to draw not only ceramicists but many other people interested in ceramics. This should help us to extend our services and reach a larger audience. The Pretoria Art Museum has also been housing the Corobrik Collection for the past 11 years. This collection serves as reference material for students at tertiary institutions. It also corresponds with our mission of collecting artwork from a broad spectrum of artists - from rural artists producing traditional ware to cutting edge contemporary artists who set design trends. May the Corobrik National Ceramics Exhibition 2012 be a successful celebration of Ceramics Southern Africa’s 40th anniversary, and may our working relationship reach bigger heights in the years to come!

Ceramics Southern Africa - 40 Years

By Wendy Goldblatt

Ceramics Southern Africa, known originally as the Association of Potters of Southern Africa, was founded in 1972. The aim of the Association was to act as a representative forum for the encouragement and fostering of the art and craft of ceramics in Southern Africa. In particular, Ceramics Southern Africa encourages and fosters the creation of awareness of the aesthetic, artistic, cultural and utilitarian value of ceramics. It assists in the building of cooperative relationships between the participants in the value chain of ceramics, from resource production through to public distribution and the development of the art and craft as a vehicle for economic empowerment and value creation. Ceramics Southern Africa promotes professional and ethical management of activities to increase the economic importance of the art and craft in Southern Africa. Art produced in clay is strong and valid, and is crossing the boundaries of other art forms and media. In the early 70s there were several individuals working as potters in their own studios, organising their own exhibitions. From this, the idea of a national co-ordinating body developed and Brickor was approached because of their involvement in the making of clay bricks. After some negotiations, an agreement was reached. Thus, the first ceramic exhibition was held in the Brickor headquarters in Edenvale. Sales were brisk and there was great excitement and interest. As a result of the success of the exhibition, interest in establishing an Association of South African potters developed.

Ceramics Southern Africa - 40 Years (continued) The first meeting was held in 1972 at Sammy Liebermann’s house in Kelvin and the Potters Association of South Africa was established. The first exhibition took place at the Atrium Gallery in Rivonia. Slowly the membership spread to the Cape, Eastern Cape, Pretoria, Vaal Triangle and Durban and a short while later Mollie Fisch published the first potter’s magazine, “Sgraffiti” with articles written by wellknown potters.

In 1987 the National Ceramics Quarterly magazine , edited and published by

Michael Guassardo, became the official publication of the Association. A programme of very successful and extensive workshops followed the first workshop held at Kolanyama in Lesotho, which was soon followed by an equally stimulating workshop at Esias Bosch’s studio in White River. From the late 1970s Regional Exhibitions were held annually in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Kwa Zulu Natal and Gauteng. The Potters Association of Namibia later became an affiliated member of Ceramics Southern Africa. Every two years a National Exhibition is hosted in Cape Town, Pretoria or Johannesburg. For these events, an international ceramic artist is invited to South Africa to be the award judge and to give workshops around the country. Among these have been Janet Mansfield and Janet de Boos from Australia, Jack Doherty and Peter Beard from the United Kingdom, Jeff Oestreich from the U.S.A. and this year’s award judge, Daphne Corregan from France.

Ceramics Southern Africa - 40 Years (continued) The Corobrik Ceramics Collection, a historic record of ceramics in South Africa, is housed at the Pretoria Art Museum. Generous funding from Corobrik allows the trustees to acquire pieces of contemporary ceramic art each year to add to this Collection, which is viewed by hundreds of visitors every month. Ceramics Southern Africa provides an opportunity for all ceramic artists, potters and sculptors to

show their work to the public at prestigious venues and continues to promote clay as an art form.
