Rialheim’s 2017/2018 BRAVE Collection sees ceramic ranges inspired by Africa, farm life and Cape Agulhas.
““Our 2017/2018 collection is testament to this very scary emotional action required from our species, not only for survival, but for an evolution we can influence,” says Brand Director Nicola Argyros. “It is with this creative spirit that we shaped the BRAVE collection with our minds, hands and consciousness. We braved uncharted ideology of our needs, wants and cravings into three collections under BRAVE, titled Farm Life, My Africa and Cape Agulhas.”
Shaped on a farm in the Cape Winelands by the talented team under the direction of Nicola, Daniel and Creative Director Rial Visagie, Farm Life sees ceramics featuring aspects of African farm life, from decorative pigs to Nguni cattle motifs, while My Africa highlights geometric-inspired tableware in blues, pastel pinks and textured neutrals, as well as life-like ceramic renditions of animals found on the continent. The Cape Agulhas range is the southernmost tip of Africa rendered in ceramic form, featuring carefully created ceramic fish, whale and sea-life pieces in calming hues of blue and white.
