The Underberg Studio is situated in the picturesque farming village of Himeville at the foot of the Southern Drakensberg. Here you will find the work of several leading South African fine art photographers and ceramists displayed in the gallery.
The Underberg Studio is a gallery and working studio specialising in Fine Art Photography and Ceramics. The business is owned by two artists, Lawrance and Catherine Brennon. Lawrance is a fine art landscape photographer, while Catherine is a ceramic artist and potter. The gallery was set up primarily to exhibit their own work but also includes the work of more than 30 other selected South African ceramists and photographers. All the work on show is available for purchase.
Visitors to the gallery are welcome to come into the studio area to see Catherine at work. Many of her fine earthenware pieces make use of impressed antique lace and there is often work in progress to be seen. The ceramic studio also offers Raku workshops from time to time along with regular pottery classes for adults. No previous experience is needed in order to participate.
