Zaria de Villiers Martens is a well-known South African Multi-Media artist who discovered Rosendal in 2001. Her work includes Painting, Mosaics, Pottery, Spinning, Weaving and hand-painted yarns. Zaria is still challenged by the discovery and practice of new mediums. Her saying; “Wie’s bang?” makes her a truly multi-media artist. She now works primarily as a Fibre artist producing art that is both functional and wearable.
Zaria and husband Dewald Martens met in 2012 and a year later the couple moved to Rosendal permanently. Dewald practices warm-glass craft producing items that are not always functional. He is also an avid genealogist and part-time author having just published his first novel.
A visit to Kaboedel will most likely also lead to a tour of the mosaic house and studios of the couple.
