Biography

Hennie Meyer is an acclaimed South African ceramist. He works predominantly in eathernware, creating highly individual pieces. Hennie enjoys the challenge of making composite shapes, experimenting continually with the expressive qualities of clay and glaze. His balance of strong form with highly detailed surfaces creates aesthetically pleasing vessels in his recognisable signature style.

Hennie studied ceramics in Australia and South Africa. He exhibits extensively, both locally and overseas. His work has been included in numerous permanent collections and international publications. Hennie and Heleen and their two sons live in Durbanville, Cape Town. He works and teaches from his studio at home.
