This set of four various sized, multi-coloured bowls are produced by Wonki Ware, which was founded by Di Marshall in 1999 and based in a small studio in George, on the southern coast of Africa.
The production process of each piece of this traditionally produced South African pottery is around three weeks. Raw clay is dug up from the southern coast of Africa which is then shaped and left to dry for five days in the sunshine.
It then undergoes its first firing in a kiln to turn the clay to a hard rough bisque product. Once cooled the bisque is sanded and cleaned, making it ready for decorating and glazing.
The glazed pottery is then put back in the kiln for the final firing which takes approximately three days to reach the right temperature and cool down. The end product is a fashionable and hardwearing piece of pottery. Due to the handmade nature of these products no two are exactly the same, which gives them an individual beauty.
Each set of bowls has a yellow, a blue, a green and an orange bowl. The largest bowl (orange) measures 26x12cm.
