Introducing Half Square

This evening we're hosting a special preview of World Design Capital project Half Square (#WDC382) - a ceramic art product born out of collaboration between fine artists and skilled ceramic artisans. The inaugural range takes the form of 2.1m x 1.4m Artist Panels boasting the designs of renowned local creatives, and launching at Cape Town's First Thursdays event.

INAUGURAL RANGE FEATURES PROMINENT CREATIVES

Designs for the panels were commissioned from four renowned creatives: Illustrator / Designer Heather Moore of Skinny laMinx, Knitwear Designer Laduma Ngxokolo, Fine Artist Swain Hoogervorst and Fine Artist / Fashion Designer Doreen Southwood. These designs were then translated into ceramic panel artworks by highly trained ceramicists.

Three panels will feature at May's iteration of First Thursdays Cape Town - displayed at Skinny laMinx, Robert Sherwood Design and the AVA Gallery, with displays at Skinny laMinx and Robert Sherwood Design extended till the end of May.

SPECIAL PREVIEW OF A VERSATILE PRODUCT

Half Square Artist Panels act as art pieces in their own right. They also serve as a preview of the creative possibilities of Half Square - demonstrating the vast colour palette and scalability of the product. The product is named Half Square after its triangular format - a repetitive modular unit both beautiful and easily scalable, fit for a number of design applications. Commercial ranges will be available for purchase towards the end of 2014. During this interim, Half Square will be open for large-scale commissions as well as general enquiries.
