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.

Tessa Wethli makes wierd and wonderful ceramics.

One Roof Studio presents a unique collaboration of resident Artists

One Roof Studio, will be hosting its first major art exhibition by resident artists on the 29th July 2010 to mark its one year anniversary as one of Cape Town’s up-and-coming art spaces.

This follows a number of smaller ‘open studio days’ as One Roof enters the market to provide the Cape Town art scene with a new and convenient location for working artists and for exhibiting artistic talent.

Alex Whyatt, originator of the One Roof studio, says ‘the opening Resident Artists Exhibition on the 29th is a very exciting initiative to showcase the exceptional talent of our emerging and established artists and to encourage more artists to join our community. Our Ethos is to provide a space for creative types of many disciplines to come together and benefit from the artistic energy we generate’.

The space is an open-plan New York-style loft, accessed by stairs within the original Old Biscuit Mill building. It is designed as a shared studio for all types of creatives from painters to ceramic and jewellery artists. One Roof is also an ideal teaching space, with all necessary facilities at hand.

The Resident Artists exhibition on the 29th is a collaboration of fine artists currently working at the One Roof studio. These include South African and international talents:

Alex Wiid – Painter and Mixed-media Artist
Angela Katschke – Painter
Jeanie Hugo – Jewellery Artist
Lindé – Painter
Tessa Wethli – Ceramic Artist
Yve Borstrock – Ceramic Artist

The event will begin at 6pm on Thursday 29th July with welcome drinks and is hosted by comedian, Russell Fox. The exhibition will also be open on Friday 30th July by appointment only and from 9am – 1pm on Saturday, during the Biscuit Mill Market.
‘This is a beautiful space and a wonderful opportunity’, says Alex Whyatt. ‘The exhibition promises to be a fantastic experience and we welcome all artists and art lovers to join us!’
