Hidden
Award-winning South African ceramist Hennie Meyer works predominantly in earthenware, creating highly individual pieces. Using the expressive qualities of clay, composite shapes and colour, he turns strong forms and detailed surfaces into aesthetically pleasing vessels, objects and installations.

His work is neither commercial nor mass-produced. Every single piece is individually formed and shaped, then repeatedly glazed and fired.

Hennie’s work is exhibited in South Africa, Europe, the UK and Asia. He has participated in Ceramic Art London for seven consecutive years. His work has been included in numerous private and public collections, notably those of the Iziko Museums of Cape Town, Corobric Collection, King George V Gallery, Sasol Museum and the Durbanville Clay Museum. He also creates ceramic artwork and installations on commission from international clients and corporates.

He is a member of the International Academy of Ceramics and a fellow of Ceramics South Africa.
