Jan Ernst De Wet
b.1990, South Africa


Jan Ernst is a multidisciplinary creative based in Cape Town, who specialises in art and design. His work is influenced by his fascination with natural structures such as coral, fungi and cave-like formations. The collectable designs have evolved into functional art and sculptural furniture expressed through ceramics.

Jan's work takes on an experimental approach as he prefers making bespoke pieces himself by hand his organic design stems from his abstract understanding of form and space and deep connection with the natural world. He aims to create conversation by awkward negative spaces and voids in the pieces while bringing people together with the functionality of his work.
