Towards the end of 2015 Wendy Goldblatt well-known ceramicist and Peta Hunter established stylist & exhibition curator joined forces to open a gallery specializing in ceramics and ceramic sculpture. The idea came about as Wendy felt there aren’t enough outlets to showcase and sell ceramics in Gauteng.
The Space Between at Peta’s Place opened in October with an exhibition of Lisa Firer’s porcelain tea lights and vessels. It was followed by Lalage Hunter with her carved terracotta pots and Wendy Goldblatt’s boldy decorated porcelain bowls and in December a group exhibition was held of Original Objects which consisted of exquisitely handcrafted jewellery, fabrics and ceramics. All three exhibitions were very successful and well received. Visitors loved the ambience of the space and have indicated an interest in future exhibitions and activities .
In February we are opening with some ceramic history - an unusual exhibition of a collection of original art deco vessels & objects.
This will be followed by an exhibition of jugs of all shapes, sizes and uses, and after that a teapot exhibition of intriguing & imaginative teapots. If you would like to participate in either the jug or the teapot exhibition, please let us know as soon as possible or start making either or both!
We also intend to show ceramic sculptures both small and large as we have a beautiful garden space for larger outdoor work.
We will be holding one man shows, group exhibitions and special themed exhibitions throughout the year.
We are currently looking for potters who have existing work they would like to show or who are planning an exhibition and/ or who would be interested in making pieces for one of our specific forthcoming exhibitions. Remember, our exhibition of jugs will be coming up soon and we would be delighted if you would enter some pieces for this exhibition.
If you are interested, please contact us - we would love to meet with you and discuss your work or if you are out of Joburg please email images of your pieces.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Peta and Wendy
