November potter of the month
3 November 2019
The Pretoria Arts Association’s potter for November is multi-award winning South African ceramicist Sandy Godwin. Her works are on display in collections, including the Corobrick collection, galleries and homes around the world. All her creations reveal the perfect poise of a vessel crafted at the hands of a disciplined artist. There is a classic restraint in this beauty; a reserved confidence that draws in the discerning eye.
Moreover her work is a celebration of femininity; infused with her memories and the traces of lace from her childhood. She elevates the character of clay and embroiderers a decorative dance across each perfect piece.
What started as a hobby transformed into a passion for Godwin. Once her passion was ignited, her perfectionist nature honed her curiosity into a discipline. Passion, discipline and curiosity form the trio that drives her creativity and the ability to refresh her approach. A member of Ceramics South Africa, she is based in Dowerglen, Johannesburg, where she has a home-based studio. Her work has been exhibited all over and as stated, she has received several awards.
