“I think making things is what all humans do. It’s knowing what you want to make, that’s the test. I’ve been exploring copper for ten years now. Pulling and pushing the boundaries of what convention says can be done with the metal. My African education in design has, I think, only helped this process. I’m not bogged down by pre-conceived ideas. Change comes easily to me. Maybe that’s why copper and I get on so well. We’re both adaptable.”
Stephen Myburgh was born in Durban, South Africa. After his national service he left South Africa and began a long voyage of discovery. “My travels have taken me all over the world. From the jungles of Guatemala to the deserts of Egypt. It is these places and these experiences that help me see the world as I see it now.”
Blurring the line between art and furniture, Stephen's pieces are organic forms captured in copper.
