Annelie Ceramics

Originally from the Eastern Cape in South Africa, Annelie Janse van Rensburg started working with clay in 2016.  She now lives in the Western Cape and currently works from her studio in Mowbray, a suburb of Cape Town.  Annelie’s work draws inspiration from nature, which is evident in the delicate floral designs of her ceramic pieces.

"Nature inspires my work, I am especially drawn to South African fauna and flora. I love to experiment with different hand building techniques. My work showcases the malleable quality of clay, as well as the mark the maker leaves. The vessel is also never completely covered in slip, as I celebrate clay as my canvas. I want my delicate designs to compliment the humble medium I'm passionate about.”
