‘Focused resolutely on this creative path, the pace and repetitive process he employs in his making are vital to the way in which he develops his image. During the slow activity of making, the image and the meaning emerge intuitively from the first stitch or mark which germinates from his source idea.’

Julia Meintjes. (2014) The Constant Craftsman, in Neil Dundas and Julia Charlton (eds.) In the Weave: Walter Oltmann – Working over Three Decades (exhibition catalogue), Johannesburg: Standard Bank. Page 20.
