Beautiful new freehand drawings by Cheryl Malone

Artist Cheryl Malone is best known for her ceramic vessels, hand-painted with intricate detail to create a stunning visual effect.

She recently showed us her versatility as an artist with the following three freehand ink drawings on paper. As you can see, a good synergy exists between the ceramic vessels and the drawings, but they easily stand alone as well.

These works form part of a series of approximately 45 drawings, which was started by Cheryl last year.

The first series of similar drawings was shown at Everard Read Gallery a while back and we look forward to the exhibition of this new series.

Gemma Orkin’s latest creations

Gemma Orkin’s latest decorative vessels are inspired by African bird life. They are refreshing in their irregularity and full of character.

Wholey Bowls by Tessa Wethli

Look what just came out the kiln!

These bowls are all handmade at my shared studio at The Old Biscuit Mill (www.oneroof.co.za)
The inspiration is seaweed and underwater creatures, spotty things and butterfly wings…

And of course they are just perfect as fruit bowls – no more rotting nectarines!
So far they have proved very popular. These images are of my latest work, fresh from the kiln, just last week.

I will be at the Potter’s Market on March 19th at  Rondebosch Park off Campground Road, between 9am and 2pm.

Come meet me and see my new ceramic art in person or find my work at Imagenius on Long street, and Casamento at The Old Biscuit Mill on Albert Road, Woodstock.

I’ll also have my work on show at the ‘One Roof One Word’ Exhibition on Thursday March 31st at the Old Biscuit Mill courtyard from 6 til 9pm.

Cheryl Malone recently completed a new series of intricately beautiful vessels. Each piece is hand-crafted from porcelain and individually fired. We think one of these creations would make a wonderful centrepiece and talking point for a home or gallery!
