Potter of the Month: Karen van der Riet

Karen's fascination with clay began in 1976 when she attended classes and very soon set up her own studio in Shakaskraal, KZN. She worked in stoneware, according to the Leach tradition, and made functional pieces which were fired in a reduction atmosphere in a gas kiln. 
 
She is now working in porcelain. Everything is hand thrown on the potter’s wheel. Forms are classic and simple and glazing is a continuous exciting experiment for her. She loves the way the glazes combine and flow and react with one another and with the clay.
