Joy Savage
I am a ceramic artist and have lived all my life in Central and Southern Africa. I used to teach in schools, and then from home, but I am now working on my own from our new home in Stellenbosch, Western Cape. Apart from participating in several group exhibitions, I have had two solo exhibitions, the first in Durban in 2006, and my second here in the Cape in 2008. I enjoy working in various types of clay, and specialize in incised and impressed slab-rolled work. I carve my own stamps and roulettes, and my subject matter is anything that currently takes my fancy - be it photographs I have taken in a game reserve,  African textiles, mythology, the sea.......the inspiration is infinite! My work finds buyers both in South Africa and abroad. I also write regular reviews for the National Ceramics Quarterly Magazine.
