from the editor

The robots are coming! It’s something straight out of an H. G. Wells novel and yet, as we attempt to situate ourselves within the fourth industrial revolution, it’s something very real (although perhaps not quite as dramatic as an invasion by tentacled Martian machines). The fact remains that, as artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality and the general internet of things continues to grow and evolve, the idea of the manmade, especially in the wabi-sabi sense of it, becomes all the more valuable – and important. It’s why this issue celebrates the uniquely human idea of craftsmanship. Ask any of the artisans in this issue (and there are many) what craftsmanship means to them (and we did) and you’ll find no two answers are the same. There are common threads, sure…

keeping it surreal

there is a very dreamlike and almost de Chirico-esque quality to your work. Where do you draw inspiration from and what guides your process? I guess the word ‘dreamlike’ does summarise what I am trying to create. I draw inspiration from architecture, interior spaces, light, shadow and colour, but also, and equally as important, from human connection. I appeal to the sense of nostalgia and time. All, I think, are very related to the way we humans lead our lives. Interiors and architecture are central in your designs, especially in how you approach dimensionality and space in relation to colour. Why is that? There is something special, almost spiritual, about colour. I believe in the energy a colour emanates, I believe in the language of colour and its power to communicate so much more than…

feat of clay

I take these opportunities to experiment and explore new things. I like to find out what the environment has for me,’ says ceramic artist Andile Dyalvane. He is sitting in the studio at Leach Pottery – a workshop in St Ives, England – founded by master potter Bernard Leach in 1920. Nearing the end of his two-month residency, Andile is reflecting on the body of work he has created. ‘It’s always good to be away from your day-to-day base.’ Deep involvement with cultural context and vernacular ceramic traditions has underpinned Andile’s career. With his stoneware vessels, which range from 30 centimetres to 1.3 metres tall, he draws upon his Xhosa heritage and tells all manner of narratives. They are symbols imbued with meaning. These new works produced at Leach Pottery are no…

dream weaver

The Karoo may seem as desolate a place as they come but here, in the impossibly vast landscape, Frances van Hasselt has built something akin to an oasis. Well, a creative oasis that is, as you’ll find no real abundance of water and lush greens here. Rather, in this dry region, she and a team of master weavers create some of South Africa’s finest textiles, using Angora goat mohair. Since making her debut in House & Garden in 2017, her company Frances V. H has grown considerably. She opened a small studio in Prince Albert (where her family’s Angora goat farm is situated) and this space serves as a platform for collaborations and creative residencies. ‘I also want it to be a space where clients and creatives from various backgrounds can…
