Wonderful Wonki Ware

Wonki ware (love the name) is a range of pottery from South Africa, conceptualised by the potter Di Marshall in her small studio located on the Garden Route on the Southern coastline of Africa. Di’s vision was to provide employment for the local people and today she has a large team of Wonki Ware potters producing beautiful and unique ceramic tableware from her studio and supplying their products to interiors stores around the world.

I love the deliberate imperfection that the technique creates, which gives the range a wonderful organic earthy aesthetic while still being incredibly stylish and very beautiful. Too good to be hidden away in a cupboard, I would display these on a shelf in the kitchen, just ready and waiting to be filled with warming winter soups or vibrant summer salads.

Wonki Ware is stocked around the world and you can find out more at wonkiware.co.za. In the UK, the range is available through such diverse retailers as Jamie Oliver and Amazon…
