I have a deep love for all things pretty that have been made my hand, especially ceramics, in fact I may or may not have a weak spot for them so when I came across Amor Coetzee’s work, especially her ceramics I found myself swooning. Amor is a Cape Town based artist who has a beautiful range of ceramics and illustrations under the brand – Dayfeels.
Amor’s ceramics allow her to experiment with texture, contrast, abstract shapes and patterns to create hand-made, one of a kind pieces which are just too pretty for more words. So I’m going to stop typing here and let you see them rather.
– My inspiration stems from a deep appreciation for the landscape, the ocean and the properties of water have had the most significant influence on my current works. The hues, ripples and reflections, the immense power and the calm. It is my muse. I am very drawn to a clean and muted aesthetic and work through a process of elimination, starting out with a lot of detail and removing bit by bit until only the very essence remains. I try to communicate a sense of calm in my work. Like a whisper.
