Ceramic One of A Kind Teddy
Completely One of a Kind, these Ceramic Teddy Bears by Clementina draw inspiration from the patterns, colors, and textures of the African landscape. Colorful, playful, and with a sense of humor - these Bears you will fall in love with! Makes the perfect gift. Clementina Van der Walt is a well-known South African studio potter, based in Cape Town, whose work is represented in several South African national and international collections. “My intention is to ‘seek the sacred in the ordinary’. Making contemplative and utilitarian objects by hand in the ceramic discipline, with cultural and historical links to rituals of everyday life, encompasses society, religion and philosophy. The archetypal significance of the home, as a point where our spiritual and earthy lives interconnect is where I have attempted to explore these ideas.”
Clementina’s aesthetic inspiration is drawn from the patterns, colors and textures by applying techniques of press molding, casting and throwing and using earthenware clay's, slips and under-glazes.
Colors are carefully chosen and designed to complement each other.
