Their work is both sculptural as well as utilitarian

Working from their studio in the Santos/Madragoa neighbourhood, Bryony Persson and Wanda Miller design and create contemporary ceramics chiefly using stoneware and porcelain. All the pieces exhibited in their workshop are unique.

Wanda’s ceramics are all hand built and draw inspiration from nature. She is fascinated with the marks and textures created during the phases of growth knocking the preciseness of her work off balance in a nod to nature’s organic imperfection. Over the years she has explored a variety of techniques including the construction of large scalesculptures and raku firing.This year she is creating a new series of porcelain sculptures, hanging mobiles and wall installations that take us further into the intricate world of natural forms and textures.

Bryony is a potter, painter and illustrator. Her work includes thrown ceramics which are then glazed or illustrated, ceramic sculptures and Indian ink paintings. Her aim is to achieve lightness and efficiency of line leaving the remaining details to your imagination.This year she will be presenting a new collection of abstract paintings inspired by local landscapes using the different mediums of clay, paper and veering towards a more instinctive and even looser style of brushstroke.

At times both artists come together to collaborate on joint pieces which are then stamped as a Persson and Miller.
