We are South African Studio Potters who have been working together in the  tradition of high temperature, reduction-fired pottery (stoneware and porcelain) since 1973

Our 2010/11 Website is intended to convey the range of work we produce, the environment in which we live and work, and the context which gives meaning to our pursuit

Our working studio is situated in the historic heart of Swellendam in the Overberg region of the Western Cape in South Africa, on the N2 national road,  halfway between Cape Town and the Garden Route.  We are open daily and visitors are welcome to browse and enjoy the environment. It is advisable to call ahead if traveling from afar

The Website will also give those unable to visit the studio an opportunity to view our work and environment, select a piece, or commission work from us
