A ceramicist’s electric kiln can take up to 12 hours to reach the correct temperature and requires a constant power supply for the duration of the firing to achieve the desired artistic results. With ongoing national loadshedding making it much more difficult for artists to work, the exhibition is an ode to their tenacity, perseverance and creativity in crisis. The title, An Act of Faith refers to the unpredictability of working with clay, never being sure that what goes into the kiln will come out the way it is expected to. Exploring key themes of physical, emotional and spiritual transformation, viewers will experience ceramics with a story – simultaneously experimental and functional but always beautiful.
The exhibition runs until 23 October and is open for viewing daily from 9:00 - 17:00
