Potterswork Pottery is BACK!!
A World of Color and Pattern
After taking up pottery as a hobby, Chris Silverston fell in love with the medium because of its balance of beauty and functionality. It 1986, Chris founded the Potter's Shop in her hometown of Kalk Bay, a seaside village on the outskirts of Cape Town, where she sold glazes, contemporary ceramics and held bi-annual exhibitions.
In 1991, she opened the Potter's Studio above the shop where people could come and paint their own plates. This evolved into a design studio with artists such as Lisa Ringwood, Tiffany Wallace and Willemien de Villiers doing the painting. They were followed by Majolandile Dylvane, Madoda Fani and Theo Ntunwana, now prominent ceramicists, in their own right.From Potter's Shop to Potterswork
As the business grew, if morphed into the Potter's Workshop and moved to the nearby Capricorn Business Park. Chris took on a number of men from the local communities and trained them in the art of ceramics painting. Here these artisans developed their tactile, bead-like style of painting for which the company became renowned.
The Business changed hands in 2016, but Chris resumed ownership in 2019. It was renamed, simply, Potterswork and they continue to produce detailed, high-quality ceramics for which they have become known around the world. The beautiful items produced by their team are exported to various outlets in North America, Europe and Australia.G Squared is proud to be one of 13 shops in North America that work with Chris and the amazing artisans at Potterswork!
