Kim Sacks Gallery
Established in 1986, the Kim Sacks Gallery
displays the artist’s collection of beautiful and unique clay vessels. Combining contemporary aesthetics with rural and urban design, the works of clay reflect a modern interpretation of traditional African designs. In 1998 the gallery moved to its current location in the heart of Johannesburg's "Gallery Strip," a fashionable and artistic area in the suburb of Parkwood.
Visiting the Kim Sacks Gallery in Johannesburg
Kim Sacks has worked with clay since the age of 12. Born in South Africa, Kim gained most of her formal ceramic education at the Danish School of Design in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her cross-cultural experiences have continued to serve as a major source of inspiration for her work. However, the artist draws inspiration from a variety of other sources, including the idea of limitless creativity, the relationship between form and function, and the notion of what it means to live in Africa today.
The collection 'Recent Conversations with my Ancient Continent' is comprised of a series of abstract interpretations of the African landscape. The works represent the artist's personal ideals alongside her deep connection to her home continent, and the passion she puts into her work is clear to see.
Learn from the master of clay
Her clay creations are suitable for decoration as well as everyday use. Kim also runs part time classes, in the mornings as well as weekend workshops and special one off events called ‘Clay Journeys.’ This is a unique opportunity to learn from one of South Africa’s leading artists.
