CAPE TOWN — New on the scene ceramic designers Martin Vorster and Colin Braye’s towering geometric vases, torn-edged bowls and parabolic carafes embody an understated elegance focusing on form, shape and color.
Each piece is manufactured using a variety of techniques including throwing, slipcasting and jiggering, Vorster tells Visi, South Africa’s design, decor and architecture magazine.
Each item is designed and made in-house with intense attention placed on the final finishes.
Their textural and tonal range traverses from earthy unglazed clay to rich gemstone hues, from matte and glossy glazes to metallic lustre accents — striking a seemingly effortless balance in each piece created.
“Textures can be anything from rough, unglazed clay to textured matte and high-gloss glazes. We particularly enjoy the contrast created by using different textures on the same piece.”
