An unlikely collaboration between a former accountant and engineer has birthed one of South Africa’s most exciting contemporary ceramic duos, Vorster & Braye. Martin Vorster and Colin Braye’s vases and tableware draw inspiration from Mid-Century ceramics and architecture, and industrial design, to produce a unique collection that finds the sweet spot between the past and the future. The pair’s creative process combines free hand drawings with 3d computer modeling, which generates distinct and playful pieces. Shapes contrast between organic and geometric, color shifts between the naturalness revealed by the clay and earthy, vibrant hues and the textures of glaze and matte frequently coexist.
I stumbled upon this store after moving to Rye from the Midwest and... wow! their inventory is so beautiful and unique. The customer service was amazing (very informative about their products without pressure) and the backstories to the items are inspiring. their focus on sustainability and sourcing from collectives in South Africa that give back to their local communities definitely makes me want to shop there again. Thank you!
