If the work of Rika Herbst and her Bohlokoa Studio is to speak, it should be in a whisper, says the Johannesburg-based designer.
Herbst explains that her porcelain designs are for contemplation and enjoyment, with nature as her main source of inspiration.
A new range of lights with porcelain, hand-carved shaded have been individually made with their own distinctive style.
Playing with light and shadows are a key feature of Herbst’s designs. She explains that the interplay of light is an integral part of each piece, with the aim to give each piece a contemporary feel while still enhancing the quality of the material.
