CILLA WILLIAMS
 
 

An interest in ceramics in the early seventies lead to inspirational tuition at the Ruth Prowse Art Centre. Subsequently, Angelique Kirk, Maxie Hyeman and the late Marietjie van der Merwe were instrumental in developing my work.

“I use a porcelain clay body which can be wheel thrown and turned. Form, clean lines and symmetry are a priority. The completed pots are sprayed with metallic sulphates and oxides prior being subjected to pit firing.”

The deep tonal range achieved imparts richness and depth to the vessel without the need to use brush and glaze.
