Michelle Legg, the Association of Arts Pretoria’s August Potter of the Month, has exhibited extensively and has work in collections in Denmark, the USA and South Africa. She has won ceramic scholarships, grants, residencies and awards as well as contributing as a selector and award judge for the Potters Association of Namibia’s Ceramics Biennale and for Ceramics Southern Africa. In 2012 she was honoured as a Fellow of Ceramics Southern Africa.
Strong forms and good proportion have always been the most important element of her work. Legg is currently working on a new body of work creating contemporary objects that explore form and textures as well as figurative pieces that explore humanities decay and destruction.
Sandra Legg, a self-taught artist who is also from Johannesburg, works predominantly in the medium of photography and composite digital images. Her work is influenced by her experience with painting, music and dance and her portraits and surreal composite images are inspired not only by the subject but also by stories, poetry, music and dreams.
