From humble beginnings as a small craft operation, the production of this “Raku” pottery now employs over 45 people from a small town outside of Cape Town in Sth Africa. All the pieces are handmade and hand painted before being fired at 950 deg cel. They are then placed in smouldering sawdust which blackens the crazes. This process is largely uncontrolled and the slight imperfections that appear in the glaze make each piece unique.
