Di Marshall Pottery: South African Dinnerware and Table Accessories now sold in the USA Les, Artwel and I became a formidable pottery team. Love Di Marshall

I live in a small town called George along the Garden Route in South Africa. I started a small studio in the town centre about 10 years ago purely to keep myself occupied while my children where at school. We lived on a farm at the time and had to travel quite a distance everyday so I thought it would be good idea to work in my pottery studio in the morning, collect my children and go back to the

Pollo Alla Cacciatora 14/09/2022

Pollo Alla Cacciatora This is an old favourite - chicken cooked "the hunter's way" - which grants a certain amount of culinary licence, although Italians might not agree. My version is traditional enough, only speeded up and simplified. The unexpected deviation lies in the addition of a can of cannellini beans, which, in...

Yesterday we were privileged to be visited by the Minister of Finance and Economic Opportunities, Mireille Wenger, Western Cape Premier Alan Winde, and the Mayor of George, Leon van Wyk, as they and other delegates kicked off Tourism Month in George, on the Garden Route.

The premier enjoyed painting a mug and decorating a mosaic tile after a walk through the Wonki Ware
Factory and learning all about our production processes.

Thank you to everyone for the well wishes today on the passing of Artwell, he would have been delighted!
We enjoyed the privilege of a 25 year destiny together - our love of clay and creating beautiful dinnerware became our passion and our focus.

I remember him and I working late into the nights in the beginning to get our orders out - there is something very special about a pottery studio at night with the kilns burning and the clay absorbing all our energy, bringing rhythm and silence into the studio.

I am extremely grateful for having shared this experience with such a special human being. ❤️

The Wonki Ware family would like to pay tribute to our most valued employee, Lulamile Artwell Mthonjeni, who passed away last night after a period of illness.
Artwell was the first potter to start the Wonki Ware journey together with Di Marshall over 20 years ago and his skill and finesse as a potter, sculptor and artist has been an invaluable contribution to the Wonki Ware brand. His jokes, laughs and smiles will be dearly missed in our studio, and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this time.
