Githan Coopoo's Joyful Earrings – The Thermos alludes in form to vessels and tableware, albeit a more contemporary version than his Joyful Earrings – The Pitcher. By placing a thermos flask and an amphora-like pitcher together, Coopoo draws parallels between contemporary life and life in antiquity, finding a common thread with a graceful sense of humour.

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.
