John Newdigate and Ian Garrett

South African 1968- and 1971-  Top Artists


John Newdigate is one of South Africa’s most celebrated ceramicists and artists. Living in the Western Cape Newdigate strives to work in the present, recording contemporary issues in conjunction with the physical landscapes, plants and animals that he encounters in his everyday surroundings. He is an exuberant colourist and specializes in painting hand-built, porcelain vessels using an original technique inspired by precise and spontaneous mark-making. Newdigate works in partnership Ian Garrett, who creates forms with subtle and taut curves that are an ideal surface on which to paint. Newdigate has exhibited in numerous exhibitions and included in collections at Iziko Museums of South Africa, Cape Town; South African Cultural History Museum, Cape Town; William Humphries Public Art Gallery, Kimberley; Renault South Africa Corporate collection, Johannesburg; and Anglovaal Industries Corporate collection, Johannesburg.
