Passing of UP Alumni Carrol Boyes, Functional Artst, Designer and Businesswoman
It was with sadness that the University of Pretoria learnt about the passing of design icon Carrol Boyes on Wednesday 14 August, at the age of 64.
Carrol Boyes was born in Cape Town on 21 November 1954. She matriculated at St Mary’s Diocesan School for Girls in Pretoria and studied art at the University of Pretoria in the 1970s, graduating with a major in sculpture. She began her career as a teacher and from the late 1980s started producing her artistic tableware. In 1991 the first Carrol Boyes shop was opened, and from there she led her creative team from strength to strength, with over 350 employees participating in the manufacturing and retail process by 2019.
