Tania Babb was born in Zimbabwe, grew up in Mozambique, but now lives in Wynberg, Cape Town in South Africa.

We acquired this piece in South Africa in 1993, and are only now making it available.

About being an artist in Africa, the well known Tania stated ď Only when one leaves this continent for a while and then comes back does one recognise a subtle but pervasive energy, for want of a better word, that seems to emanate from the surface of this continent. Permeating itís flora itís fauna and itís people. This vitality may very well be a subjective experience but I do see evidence of this in the creativity, particularly ceramics.
The colours, the vibrancy, the fresh and new surfaces, the immediacy, to me are all evidence of a rawness that I feel is unfettered and untempered by hundreds of years of civilisation. There is also fertility derived from a cross pollination of cultures which I feel makes South African ceramics unique and globally exciting.
The ceramic sculptures of Tania Babb make the proverbial fat lady sing with the essence of womanhood.

She creates her sculptures and teaches ceramics from her studio home. Height: 6 Ĺ" with base, and 5 Ĺ" without the included base.
Width: 2" x Depth: 2 ľ"
