Trinket Bowls by Yolande (Nyala NZ) are handcrafted in porcelain, glazed and finished with pure gold lustre in the final firing.
Each little bowl is unique in shape and pattern with no two quite alike. Little trinket bowls are handy and can be used for either storing jewellery and ideal as a small gift for a hard to buy for friend or as a treat to yourself. They are 100% food safe if you wished to use them for the table, but we recommend hand washing to ensure the colourlife of your piece.
Medium: Porcelain, teal blue glaze and pure gold lustre
Yolande van der Merwe (Aka Nyala NZ) is a ceramic artist based in Matamata. Originally from South Africa, Yolande grew up in the Lowveld Region, a beautiful lush and sub tropical area that proved to be very inspirational for the artist as a young creative. She trained as a potter in Nelspruit and worked in her home based studio before moving to New Zealand.
As a child she collected little treasures, like seed pods, pebbles and feathers and is still an avid collector of Nature's treasures today. Leaves and ferns in particular, are a great source of inspiration, from the intricate designs, to the actual leaf used to make imprints into the porcelain.
Yolande loves the duality of porcelain being so fragile in its soft clay stage and firing to a crisp clean white clay beautiful to behold and magical to work on.
