Landscape Table by Dahla Hulme for Southern Guild.
As a sculptor, Dahla combines natural grace and poise with single-mindedness of purpose and phenomenal focus. She grew up on a Namibian cattle farm, studied art with a photography major in Georgia, USA, lived in Scotland and Ireland, became a commercial pilot and took up sculpture after relocating to the Eastern Free State six years ago.
Hulme started exhibiting a small quantity of bespoke pieces in her gallery in Rosendal and manufacturing tailor made works commissioned by clients.
Her aim is to create beautiful utilitarian objects, where the delicate composition defines the piece, despite the initial raw nature of the materials used – discarded implements, scrap metal, steel and wood.
