Wonki Ware

I like these Baroque style ceramics by Wonki Ware which is situated in the seaside town of George in the Eastern Cape area of South Africa. I think the patterns and colours (except for the peach) are wonderful. I love the lacey, textured look of the patterns. Each item is made from hand, so no two pieces are exactly the same. Only eco friendly materials are used, and because the handmade process maximises the use of manpower, the company is able to provide employment to many economically disadvantaged local people that would otherwise not have jobs.
