Githan Coopoo's Joyful Earrings - The Pitcher allude to the classical form of amphora from ancient Greece and Rome. The stylised shapes of the earrings playfully echo the elegant silhouettes of ancient vessels. What with the work's title, one assumes Githan's pitcher is half full – or perhaps overflowing.

Artist and jewellery designer Githan Coopoo works in clay to create unique pieces of poetic import. “I find clay to be a medium that is both uncomplicated and universally timeless. I hope my pieces bring a subtle sense of self-awareness to the wearer – an almost grounding sensation. To adorn the body with a fragile ornament is to make a commitment to sensibility and sensitivity – both powerful and beautiful practices.” Githan graduated from the UCT in 2017 with degrees in English and Art History. He lives and works in Cape Town.
