Elle Deco International Design Awards winner: Best Craft Designer in South Africa

“I only coil, because when I coil it feels like I am busy drawing in three dimensions. The shape of the piece and the surface markings on it create a rhythm, a percussion beat that I think of as a wordless tactile language.”

Louise Gelderblom’s sculptural vessels are handmade in Cape Town, South Africa. While the working methods are firmly rooted in an African clay tradition, the work is part of an urban contemporary aesthetic.

Each piece is unique. It is signed, numbered and documented.

The sizes range from 70cm to 250cm.

The studio is very experienced in preparing work for freight to international destinations.
