Hennie Meyer studied ceramics in Australia and South Africa where he lives today with his wife Heleen and their two sons. Currently, he is a ceramic artist who uses the concept of repetition to cross over into the realm of installation.
Meyer makes use of multiples to create larger pieces. Conceptually, he is interested in the diverse roles played by individuals in groups. Clay is his passion and obsession, and working with the material allows him to think.
Observing a group of jugs in his studio sparked his first large scale installations in 2008.Then, an invitation to make a number of extensive ceramic works for Qunci Villas – a boutique hotel in Lombok, Indonesia – took these ideas further.
Meyer exhibits extensively, both locally and overseas. His work has been included in numerous permanent collections and international publications, while he has been awarded many prizes, mentions, and accolades during the course of his career.
