Karen van der Riet
I began working with clay in 1976 in KwaZulu-Natal where I set up my studio producing functional stoneware in the Leach tradition. 

Recently I have been drawn to the very special qualities of porcelain and am continuously experimenting with various glazes and combinations of glazes to produce interesting effects.  The process of learning does not stop and I enjoy attending many courses, workshops and demonstrations.

In 2010, I received awards in both Ceramics SA Regional and National exhibitions.   I run a teaching studio in Centurion. 

My wish is to create work which is a reminder of the beauty of creation that surrounds us and is a part of us.
