282 x 282 x 14 mm | softcoverOver the past four decades, Hylton Nel (b. 1941) has developed a distinct ceramic style rich in references to the decorative arts, literature, and art history. His imagery ranges from the erotics to religious, his objects populated by cats and angels, with quotes drawn from poetry and the daily press as well as his observations of the world around him. Hylton presently lives on the outskirts of Calitzdorp, a small town in the Klein Karoo.
