Githan Coopoo is a self-taught ceramicist who creates delicate handcrafted jewellery designs. Odd Couple Earrings alludes to classical form of the amphora from ancient Greece and Rome. Their stylised shape playfully echo the ceramic composition of ancient vessels; the one earring more abstract than the other, offering a reinterpretation of the amphora’s negative space and rounded contours.

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.
