Katharine and Susan are two sisters who decided to find a silver lining to the cloud of living thousands of kilometres apart (Susan lives in South Africa, while Katharine lives in England.)
Their love affair with Wonki Ware started when Susan flew home for Christmas one year, with a large Wonki Ware salad bowl in aubergine.
Actually she brought three, as Christmas presents, and that Christmas every mealtime featured one or more of the Wonki Ware gifts. Everyone was genuinely amazed at how they transformed a bowl of buttered veg, or a humble turkey curry, into a work of culinary art.
Soon after, Katharine travelled to South Africa, where she visited the urban garden that’s home to ‘Sow Delicious’. It was like stepping into an oasis of calm in an otherwise bustling city. Natural water features fed the organic produce that was growing in planters, while the team packed chocolate blocks and chatted happily.
In a very roundabout way, a love of Wonki Ware led to an introduction to the wonderful team at Sow Delicious, during which time a seed of an idea had been sown for Katharine and Susan, from which CLAYSPOON took root and started to grow…
Today CLAYSPOON specialises in the distribution of natural, hand crafted products for the home and garden.
Great pride is taken in sourcing products that are created from organic materials, ethically produced, creatively unique yet have a genuine use and purpose.
Wonki Ware and Sow Delicious are the flagship products; embodying all of these wonderful qualities and originating from the same small town on the Garden Route in South Africa. Their roots can literally be traced back to the South African soil from where they have grown and developed.
CLAYSPOON is honoured to be able to share their stories and introduce more people to these two very special products.
