Retief Van Wyk

Chantel is a restless spirit and is always on the lookout for the weird and wonderful. She rarely can resist a beautiful plate or piece of porcelain and works closely with various artists in different disciplines to create petite masterpieces to show her cuisine at its best. When she started looking for glass tableware that is out of the ordinary, she discovered Retief :
“Over the years I have worked with various materials like acrylic and oil paint, clay and glazes. Although I have had stimulating and wonderful experiences, glass remains the most challenging. The unlimited possibilities, exciting techniques and vast color pallet not only keeps you humble, but lends itself to the making of vessels and ornament, sculpture and architecture.”
