‘My World’ by Ceramic Factory

12 May , 2015  

It’s so easy to be a fan of Ceramic Factory. They’ve successfully challenged any preconceived notion that ceramics are ‘old fashioned’ or something you’d find in granny’s house to something fun, quirky and cool. With an HQ in Joburg, followed by the opening of a Cape Town branch last year, the business has grown from strength to strength, attracting a younger market who relate to its unique designs.

The new ‘My World’ Autumn/Winter 2015 collection branches away from the usual pastel, muted colour palette to a brighter hue. It’s been a collaboration with three local manufacturers in the Robertson Valley who specialise in glass, wood and steel. The range of ceramics, similar to some of their other shapes and designs, has a noted feeling of nostalgia – with a signature touch of fun. The new designs are functional with a quirky twist, and the multi-material approach is a first for the brand.

Similarly, owner Rial Visagie is partnering with local designers Leg Studios, so you’ll see some of their innovative pieces in the window too. It just goes to show, ceramics certainly aren’t ‘old lady’ material, not when progressively paired with new materials and fresh, innovative designs.

Check out Ceramic Factory in Kloof Street, Cape Town. Joburgers, head to 59 4th Avenue, Linden.
