Wonki Ware


We love our table full of Wonki Ware that adds a brilliant pop of colour to our home dept 🌈

Wonki Ware, based in South Africa, is the leader in handmade pottery dinnerware, with each piece passing through 14 pairs of hands from start to finish...and then we get to have the gorgeous finished product waiting for your hands to pick them up in St. Boswells. 🙌🏼

Open Tues-Sat 9-5:30, Sun 11-4:30.
We love our selection of classic Wonki Ware - each piece is unique in shape, pattern and colour which creates beautiful handmade custom table settings just for you. Choose from an array of red, grey, blue, marine & black across dinnerware, serveware & mugs.

Some serious kitchen goals right here! 😍Black kitchen cabinets fitted with exposed shelves to display beautiful kitchenware rather than hide it. 🖤

A sophisticated kitchen that makes a statement - with the perfect details to create a warm atmosphere. Thank you to our client for trusting us to create your vision. We are so thankful to work with amazing clients in their amazing homes! 🙏🏼 More on this project to come soon.

I was manning my stall at the Kirstenbosch Craft and Food Market recently, when a lady walked in and gasped, "I'd love to see your home. It must be so beautiful!". Well, flattered as I was by her lovely compliment of my work, I had a little silent giggle. You see, at that time, it had been about three weeks since I last saw our kitchen countertop.

The second reason why I had a little giggle in my market stall that day, was because I know very well that my own art doesn't feature much in our home (apart from the piles on the kitchen counter... and that stash on the dining room table... and the back-up stock hidden behind the couch...).

I thought it would be interesting to share what art we do have in our home - go read my latest blog post!

Apart from lots of sentimental pieces and thrift store purchases, here are some fantastic artist that feature in our home: Janette Anderson; Wonki Ware, Jurgens Walt; Sheelagh Bates; Caribbean artists, Leo Brown and Don Dahlke.

Combat the winter blues by adding some bright tableware to your table. We have an extensive selection of decorative and hand-crafted pieces in a full rainbow of colours including the brand new and EXCLUSIVE Wonki Ware Cherry Blossom collection.

Trying out some options for signage. Loving the “interim” sign added to the entrance after a quick visit to Wonki Ware morning….

Di Marshall Pottery: South African Dinnerware and Table Accessories now sold in the USA 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 farm in the afternoon. I happily started working and slowly attracted the att

Pollo Alla Cacciatora 14/09/2022

Pollo Alla Cacciatora

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.
