About

Astrid Dahl’s love of working with clay and creating forms all began when she met her ceramic lecturer, Hendrik Stroebel at the Durban Technikon of KwaZulu-Natal in 1995. She moved to Nottingham Road in 1999 where she crossed paths with design guru Neville Trickett who introduced her to the botanical photography of Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932). This triggered the start of her ever-evolving journey with clay. Blossfeldt’s monotone prints determined that she would work with white clay as she felt that it creates a pure canvas for light and dark to shape the piece, capturing the presence of the flora by which it is inspired. While Dahl starts with a drawing, the piece changes in the making, clay, to a degree has a life of its own.

About The Maker

Southern Guild

View Profile
Southern Guild has spearheaded the high-end design category in Africa, propelling its artist-designers to make spirited, challenging and complex work. Its highly curated exhibitions have redefined global perceptions of African design and escalated its value on the international market. Since being founded in 2008 as the sole gallery representing locally made limited-edition design, Southern Guild has birthed a new category for artists and designers in South Africa. In 2011 it became the first African gallery to present at Design Miami, and in 2015 it was the first to be featured at Christie’s London’s annual design auction. The gallery shows regularly at Design Miami in Basel and the US, at Design Days Dubai and the Collective Design Fair in New York, resulting in sales to leading architects, top collectors and respected museums. It has had work from its collections included in Vitra Design Museum’s “Making Africa” exhibition and “Beauty–Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial” at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Against the backdrop of a design industry that is still fairly young, Southern Guild gives designers a platform to reimagine what is possible. Founders Trevyn and Julian McGowan are embedded in the South African cultural landscape and play integral roles in guiding, advising and mentoring designers.
