HOPE & BLOSSOMS

24 April 2021 - 22 May 2021

Featured potters:  Lisa Zeffertt and Helen Espag in collaboration with the Soapsisters
 
Lisa Zeffertt works from her home studio in Broederstroom.  Her pottery journey started as a hobby many years ago, but it has since evolved into a fulltime passion.  She experiments with different techniques, clays and finishes “but my heart always returns to handwork with a combination of glazes, oxide or raku finishes”.  The artist started to incorporate thrown pieces into her work.  She has participated in a number of exhibitions, including some of the CSA.
 
Helen Espag obtained a National Diploma in Ceramic Design at the Vaal University of Technology where she was awarded as the best Ceramic Design Student of 1995.  Since then she has been a fulltime artist and likes working in different mediums, as well as clays such as earthenware, stoneware, paperclay and Egyptian paste.  “My journey with clay has taught me to keep good hope and faith and inspire others around me along the way.”
 
SOAPBOX was founded in Pretoria during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 when artists, and specifically ceramic artists, suddenly found themselves isolated and without a platform to sell their art.  The Soapsisters, who are potters themselves, wanted to create a platform that would be inclusive of all levels of ceramic artists and that would act as a metaphorical megaphone to carry the voices of these artists to the public and so SOAPBOX was born.
