Walter Battiss Ceramics $220+
Greatly inspired by archaeology and rock art, the late South African artist Walter Battiss beautifully fused indigenous stone markings with abstract painterly concepts to become one of the country's premier painters. Battiss was dubbed "the Bushman Painter" in the 1950s for making a home in southern Africa's Namib Desert (an area almost completely uninhabited by humans), which provided a strong foundation for the 10 books he would write in his lifetime. Battiss' art is now celebrated in a range of tableware by Mervyn Gers, a highly talented ceramicist who creates his own shapes, colors, glazes and decals. A percentage of profits from each sale are donated to the Walter Battiss Museum.

Best of all, each is one of a kind and hand-picked by the house's sculpture experts.
