The story of our SPRING/ SUMMER COLLECTION 2014
Ceramic Factory proudly presents our Spring/ Summer 2014 collection. Our first collection inspired and created between the vineyards and mountains of the Robertson wine valley.
When you use your passion to make things happen then miracles surround you. Ceramic Factory is the proof of this. Since the process of relocating to Robertson began it was clear we’d face countless challenges. We knew kick-starting production would be our biggest. We honestly believe that as water brings life to nature so passion brings life to people and through this miracles ensue.
Miracles were certainly responsible for getting production off the ground at the new Ceramic Factory studio. This new beginning marks the return after 26 years to our family farm ‘Clairvaux’. My forefathers settled here on the outskirts of Robertson about 150 years ago.As we were busy renovating the farm outbuildings that now house our studio, many childhood memories and fantasies were evoked. Dreams to be the next Superman, Liewe Heksie or a Wielie Walie character. Nothing is impossible in children’s imagination. This inspired many of the animation influences in our latest collection called Childhood Dream Animation.
As the adult pressures of getting our new studio up and running took over, my partner Daniel and I decided to escape for a weekend to the coast at Arniston. Whilst the beauty of the ocean, rocks and caves enveloped us, it was around 2am in the morning that I awoke with the idea of using the geometric lines of the rocks as a further element to our new collection. We couldn’t let such beauty escape and so we had to launch The Arniston Geometric Range.
It's our hope that our new collections take you to places in your wildest imaginings where nothing is impossible.
