You have your own factory, tell us what goes on behind the scenes?
Everything is made in our factory in Ferndale, Johannesburg. We are privileged to have the best sculptors and mould makers in the world. There is a lot of investment in finding the right people and in harnessing and developing skills. The team has a fundamental understanding of my own vision, but it is also important that the process allows for collaboration between us all. We’re a tight-knit bunch at Ceramic Factory. The store’s interior design was inspired by its location. The openness of the showroom with the floor-to-ceiling windows and all the natural light streaming in meant we just filled in the gaps with our product. This allows for harmonious interaction between the product and the space around it. It’s a very clean and uncluttered space in which visitors can be drawn into the world of Ceramic Factory.
