About The Light Forge

‘The Light Forge is a studio practice in Cape Town, South Africa, that makes small functional porcelain ware. As our name suggests, we seek to explore the fine translucency of the medium whilst making vessels for daily use which we hope contribute poignant moments of reflection to each day.’


‘On the Edge of the Light’ is a wonderful show in which to present our studio work. For both aesthetic and phiosopical reasons, we feel very much at home with this show’s concept, considering the implications that light and dark have on each other.’


‘Each vessel has a considered surface and our marks are made with both brush and thought. As we work, we aspire to bring a quality of the ‘non-decorative’ to our awareness and we hope our contributions to daikly lives provide nuances of light.’


The Light Forge was set up by Katherine Glenday whose love affair with the translucent nature of porcelain has extended over more than 35 years since she graduated with a degree in ceramics, In 2015, Alistair Blair joined the studio and pursued his own explorations within the studio resulting in extending the production to include red and black clays. Their joined forces are responsible for the studio production of the Light Forge and their work is exhibited in South Africa, in New York, USA and exclusively in the UK in London by THROWN.
