When thinking about the unique craft of ceramics, international ceramicist Grayson Perry (the winner of the Turner Prize) comes to mind. He is best known for his hyper-sensitised, satirical commentary painted on outstanding vases and vessels. Perry deals with gender stereotypes, class issues and Britain today. SA, unfortunately, has a noticeable dearth of this ancient art form – think of the Greeks, the Chinese. However, working from the spare room in her Keurbooms treehouse, Lucinda Mudge is changing things.
