Earlier this year, local boutique Atelerie commissioned South African ceramist, playwright, sculptor and author Theo Kleynhans to create a series of ceramic pieces using Bermuda as his muse.  The result is this collection of black earthenware clay plates on which local imagery such as the outline of the island, a fitted dinghy, a palmetto tree and the Bermudiana flower have been etched.  The plates are rendered in a limited palette of black and white but are lustred in 24 karat gold.  For Kleynhans, the alchemy involved in his creative process is reminiscent of something ancient and magical.
