A new colour test. Dark dramatic blues reminiscent of stormy summer skies created from stronger solutions of cobalt chloride with touches of ferric and barium sulphate.

Ceramics S A Regional Exhibition

The C S A regional exhibition opened on Monday evening, at the Edoardo Villa Museum on the University of Pretoria Campus. I was asked to be one of the selectors for the work, together with Jerice Doeg and Harrie Siertesema and Wilma Cruise was the awards judge. The standard, for a regional exhibition was high and a number of awards were presented to amongst others, my colleague Eugene Hon, Hazel Sherman, and Karen Murray. The premier award was presented to Dale Lambert, whose work is pictured above - delicately thrown and 'etched' porcelain pieces.
 Congratulations to everyone who participated in this show, contributing to the overall success of the exhibition.
