Jabu Nene Bowl

R420.00

I was bowled over by this bowl (am I allowed to say that?!) the moment I spotted it! Without even looking underneath for a signature I knew immediately that this was the work of a serious ceramicist! And I was right – Jabu Nene is one of the über talented artists employed by Ardmore ceramics to create their highly collectible works of art. Jabu works as a painter though, not a sculptor, which I suppose makes sense when you look at this bowl – despite it being very fine, and beautifully turned, really it’s the decoration that’s so breathtaking! Cut away into the clay is this wonderfully tactile and completely crazy pattern, and for me it’s what makes this bowl so desirable. And I’m not the only one a little bit in love – local auctioneers, 5th Avenue, put an estimate of R2500-R3500 on this bowl! A pretty penny, but in my mind well worth it for what’s essentially a serious piece of art.

Dimensions: 13.5cm tall x 17.5cm in diameter
