Abstract: This special themed edition of de arte is devoted to modern and contemporary southern African ceramics. The articles brought together survey a wide range of ceramic production, including early imported commercial trade ceramics from the colonial occupation in the Cape; low-fired, unglazed African utilitarian and sculptural ware; glazed pottery from practices referred to as studio pottery; as well as ceramics created outside of utilitarian circles. The authors, Dr Kim Bagley, Esther Esmyol, Dr Wendy Gers, Dr Elizabeth Perrill, Dr Dave Riep, and Dr John Steele, are respected curators, academics, and artists, living and working in South Africa, the United States, and the United Kingdom. They are internationally recognised experts in their respective fields and they are also educators.
