Robert Hodgins is a celebrated and highly respected South African artist. Hodgin's paintings and works on paper are highly sought after on both the local and international market. At 88, Hodgins is still producing witty and satirical works. He has been producing ceramic works for almost 2 decades, however these works have received very little exposure and the last exhibition of his ceramic works was about 18 years ago. Retief van Wyk is a ceramicist who has worked closely with Hodgins in the production of these ceramic works. Their association spans nearly 2 decades. In this title van Wyk documents the ceramic works produced by Hodgins with his assistance and the well researched essays explore the influences which form Hodgins' art and the nature of the ceramic works.
