Hanlie Bosch’s work amply expresses her parallel interest in the mediums of both clay and painting. Even though she shares a studio and gallery with her husband, ceramist Anton Bosch, her art is distinctively different with a style and approach uniquely her own.

Apart from sensitively and colourfully decorated plates and platters, Hanlie’s ceramics comprise mostly hand-built pieces and sculptures. She is well-known for her expressive, animated clay figurines of dancers and gymnasts, for contemplative, compelling clay heads with other-worldly expressions and cats with a sphinx-like quality.

Hanlie’s ability to reveal through faces and figures a depth of meaning finds expression in ceramic wall-hung, pipe-figurines. These highly tactile and decorative pipe ‘couples’ and pipe ‘families’ are at the same time humorous and haunting.

Her watercolours and oil paintings are characterised by fresh, quick brushwork and vivid colour. The main theme of her work is ‘faces, figures and animals in space.’
