Sydney, Australia – 2 October 2023 - TVSN launches exquisite South African homeware brand, Wonki Ware on Summer Living Day, 2 October 2023.


100% handmade by no less than 15 individuals, each Wonki Ware piece is unique and reflects intentional irregularities in size, glaze, and texture to illustrate the humanness of each, delicate and beautifully crafted piece.


The Wonki Ware Collection is designed to be mixed and matched from the 40 different patterns, designs and textures.


Wonki Ware hails from the small town of George located on the breathtaking Garden Route in South Africa. What initially began as a hobby, has since achieved international acclaim. “I happily started working on my pottery whilst waiting for my children to finish school and slowly attracted the attention of the local community,” says founder of Wonki Ware, Di Marshall.


At around the same time, a young Xhosa man named Artwell Lulamile Mthonjeni started arriving every morning looking for work with Di. Although she was not able to pay him, he was willing to learn and started producing very sensitively worked platters and bowls.  “We have now been in operation for about 20 years and presently employ around 80 people from disadvantaged backgrounds. They are now all skilled employees in their trade, and are valuable, contributing members in their communities.”


All Wonki Ware Products are 100% hand-made and comprise of “stoneware”, which is a vitreous (or semi-vitreous) ceramic made primarily from stoneware clay and fired at very high temperatures.


Wonki Ware will be available from Monday, 2nd October on Summer Living Day. Log on to or download the TVSNnow App from your Google or Play Store.
