Rika Herbst Ceramics: "If my work is to speak I want it to whisper. In this my aim is to create unique pieces for contemplation & enjoyment. Nature is my source of inspiration & delight & it plays a significant role in my work. The shadows cast by the interplay of light are an integral part of each piece & through this I want to give my work a contemporary feel whilst enhancing the quality of the clay. Paper porcelain is versatile & allows me to constantly push the boundaries of my work."
