Join the KZNSA Gallery for the exhibition openings of We’re oClay by Ceramics South Africa KZN region and Terra Fragmented by Nindya Bucktowar on Tuesday, August 17 from 17h30.

Members of Ceramics South Africa KZN region will be showcasing their work in an annual exhibition. Themes this year are Tea Pots – usually the domain of master potters and Paint a Plate which invited KZN artists to paint a ceramic plate in their unique style.

The Ceramic Society of Southern Africa KZN is for people who love clay. This is an Association for anyone who would like to join and tap into the knowledge of fellow ceramists.

An association member explains: “The association has a membership of approximately 40. Sadly this has been on the decline for a number of reasons. The obvious one being Covid and the not-so-obvious is that people are tending to gather all their information online. Online workshops abound. These are a lifesaver during days of isolation but we cannot wait to get back to normal and experience a hands-on workshop. Working in a social setting does wonders for your confidence and learning with feedback is invaluable.

“We normally pride ourselves on a variety of workshops. The last year and a half has been a challenge with no workshops and a missed exhibition in 2020 but nevertheless, We’re o’Clay has the ability to transform you into a world where you are removed from the stress of daily life and can create with an immediate outcome. This can range from something functional for everyday use or an imaginative work of art that you can contemplate and enjoy.”

We're oClay runs at the KZNSA Gallery from August 17 to September 5, 2021. Terra Fragmented by Nindya Bucktowar will be running over the same period. The Arts Café will be open for drinks and light meals.

The KZNSA Gallery is situated at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, in Durban. More information on 031 277 1705 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit
