Nestled in Nieu Bethesda is the Ware on Earth Ceramic Gallery and Studio. Ceramic art is traditionally a pottery process using clay and raw materials to create art objects such as tiles, tableware, figures and decorative items. In modern ceramics, non-metallic and inorganic materials are often used.
Come peruse the gallery and admire the works created by Potter Martin Haines and his wife Charmaine, the ceramicist.
While here you will have the opportunity to take a sneak peek into their studio where these fascinating works of art are created. These colourful creations are often displayed across South Africa as well as internationally, but a trip to the studio is well worth it. Although much of the ceramic art you will see is derived from medieval forms, Haines work is often described as decorative and flamboyant.
