This range has been extensively marketed and comes with an existing client base.
The most popular design is that of the SA flag (see picture).
I've worked really hard on this range and wouldn't like to see it discontinued - it would make me
very happy if someone would like to 'adopt' it and keep it going. I do believe that with the right marketing,
 it could prove to be extremely popular!
An ideal 'filler' product to an existing production line.

Making Pots that Sell & Critique of Members' Work

At 9:00 am on Saturday 10th April at the Centurion South College there will be a presentation in 2 parts.

Firstly at 9:00 - 10:00 am Deon de Lange will give a presentation on making pots that sell, ways to make your work more marketable, considering design, practicality and alternative making methods.

After a short break at 10:30 Eugene Hon and John Shirley will conduct a critique of work as they would at the University of Johannesburg, where they are both lecturers in the department of Ceramic Design. Members are asked to please bring work for discussion and feedback. We cannot guarantee that all pieces brought will be assesed but we will deal with as many as time permits.
This interactive process could offer you new insights into your work and new directions in which your work could be taken.

We urge you to take advantage of the valuable opportunity, and look forward to seeing you there. Please book with Cynthia 011 791 5253 or email.
Members R200.00 / Non members R300.00
