Grab 'em by the Imagination

Presents:  Grab 'em by the Imagination Jess Jardim write about being BRAVE + working  with iconic Rialheim ceramic pieces This month, for Grab 'em by the Imagination, I got the chance to work on a couple of beautiful Rialheim ceramic pieces. Ceramic glazing has been on my "gotta try it" list for ages, and I already have a few Rialheim pieces in my collection, so I was super excited. Working with ceramic glazes has its own challenge and limitations, and we all know how much I like to talk about that stuff, so let's dig in.   Here's what ceramics will teach you about making art bravely.   1. ELIMINATE CTRL-Z Terrifying? Obvs. Refreshing? Definitely. Working directly in pen or paint is one of the best things...

Discover Rialheim Land By Teresa Lizamore

Celebrating 4 years of crafting  Rialheim - Land    My first visit to Rialheim land in Robertson was unforgettable. Upon invitation I arrived at the Clairvaux estate to discuss the possibility of a unique outdoor sculpture garden. Driving onto the estate I was confronted by the magnificent Clairvaux manor house dating back to the early 19th century, surrounded by the breathtaking Langeberg mountains.

Ceramic Factory is becoming RIALHEIM

This is a story about finding Rialheim-land…where dinosaurs come to life when we’re fast asleep, and where our dreams become reality when we’re awake. Destiny may argue that this magical place was discovered for Ceramic Factory by their forefathers, whilst fate may insist Ceramic Factory rediscovered this 200-year-old enchanting farm all by themselves. Whichever, this wondrous place with its untold stories is a charming farm called Clairvaux, that’s much closer than you think, in the Cape’s winelands. Clairvaux has seen generations of dreamers inspire others through their deeds and ingenuity. Just like his ancestors, and Peter Pan’s J.M. Barrie, Rial Visagie, as founder and creative director at Ceramic Factory, believes flying is perhaps not so farfetched. It’s this fantastical thinking that...
