McGregor may be little more than a village nestled in the mountains of the Western Cape, but it certainly boasts a character and charm all its own, thanks to the many talented folk that have relocated from urban epicentres and made this their home. Millstone Pottery is one of the gems of this village and it showcases the inspiration and creations of local potters Paul de Jongh and Nina Shand.

This pottery studio and showroom invites local art-lovers and visitors to watch how various items are made, as well as to purchase one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect Africa and its unique arts and cultures. High-temperature wood-fired, salt-glazed or electric-fired stoneware, terracotta and porcelain is available here, and those visiting Millstone Pottery will, no doubt, be impressed at the diversity and variety of goods for the home and garden, or for gifts for those back home. Those who simply love the art of ceramics will enjoy browsing the sculptures and exquisite raku pieces.

The beautiful products available include vases, garden pots, platters and bowls, wash basins, and useful goodies for the kitchen. Thanks to their direct contact with buyers, they are able to keep their prices very reasonable.

Paul and Nina offer a number of workshops and engage in various events in order to allow and invite others to be a part of the creative process that defines this art form. The annual Wood-firing Jamboree is designed for potters of all expertise to learn, participate, and have their pieces fired in the wood-fired kiln. A number of respected potters from all over South Africa host workshops over the three days of the jamboree, as well as to give talks and demonstrations.

McGregor is situated in the Breede River Valley, about 150 kilometres from Cape Town (going east). The Mother City has an endless variety of tourist attractions and fun activities, and is home to one of South Africa’s international airports. In addition, McGregor is part of wine country, and those wanting to sample some of the finest wines in the world are urged to visit a few of the local estates of the Cape Winelands.
