“Art of showing authority”

Chris Thurman of the Business Day published an article a few month’s ago entitled “Art of showing authority two (paint-stained) fingers” which was about South African artist Candice Breitz’s exhibition … but went on to talk about his experience at our very own Color Café.

“The concept is simple: you choose a precast bisque piece for painting or an object for mosaicking, sit down at a table and lose yourself in the task. Once you’ve finished,
the ceramics stay behind for glazing and firing before you return to collect them.

What happens in between is pure magic. Call it art therapy, call it a ‘creative outlet’, call it what you will – the effect is a meditative practice in which colour, light and line combine to keep the outside world and its worries away.”

Great service

I would just like to send a message regarding the lady that was assisting at the shop on Friday. She was so helpful and kind towards me and I couldn't have asked for better service! She even assisted me until 17:05 to finish up my teapot because I had to finish it then. She also took my details to let me know if the glazing can be done sooner.
So please could you share my gratitude, it's not often that you find someone willing to go out of their way to give good service and a helping hand at the cost of their own time.
