Charles Gotthard, ceramic sculptor was born on the 5th January 1951, & presently resides in the beautiful Magaliesburg valley, North of Johannesburg in Gauteng, South Africa. In 1973 he qualified in Architectural Ceramics winning the award for the best sculptural student at the Johannesburg College of Art. Since his second year at Art College he has held several successful one-man exhibitions in ceramics & has won several awards such as the Corobrik Top Award in 1976.

His works have been bought by art museums across South Africa such as the Pretoria Art Museum, Potchefstroom & the Tasgallery in Cape Town. Charles specializes in larger sculptural works & has already done several public commissions.

Charles enjoys teaching and has combined this with art therapy in which he uses clay and music called "A Journey into self-discovery" this enables the corporate pupils to completely forget themselves and become childlike and play with clay and music, a very successful way of bringing creativity into the corporate world.

Charles also loves designing for the private clients and has created several interesting art pieces in this way from black amours to life-size Friesian Horses; one of his latest commissions was painting a 55sq.m. Dome with horse chariots and angels, a 12 seated glass table being supported by 5 seated figures, his smaller series sculptures such as the Tortoise Man, Man of Myth, Hoboseries etc. are fetching high prices on the art market.

A tribute to his creative genius is the beautiful Goblins Cove Restaurant – the website speaks for itself and now his very latest project called, La Provence D’Afrique, which is built inside his 400sq.m studio, these are going to be accommodation wi the little extra’s to turn it into something out of the ordinary; "Little bit of provence in Africa". With all his love for the old, detail and architecture, this will be a dream come true.
