tarifa pottery range
We were tired of making do with glaze samples and seconds for our everyday use and Elizabeth decided to make a set of ware for our own use. We have Rukweza of course but this is always being reserved for special occasions. She wanted it to be new and different from our other pottery and so the adventure started and 'Tarifa' was born. The name Tarifa was decided over wine with friends - as it seemed to be something evolving from sun, sea and splashing waves.
We make a range of hand-thrown tableware in high temperature stoneware clay with a simple wood ash glaze which gives a quiet green glaze, the tones being influenced by the different types of wood used for the ash, now predominantly olive and eucalyptus.
The Rukweza pottery range is an extensive range that we have produced for many years and includes plates, bowls, mugs, serving dishes and many other items. The range is always evolving and different items are added or deleted over the years...
oil lamps & Aromatherapy burners
Our very popular range of oil lamps and aromatherapy burners come in a variety of different styles, glazes and sizes. They make ideal gifts and are a beautiful addition to any home.
From time to time we produce one off pieces in both stoneware and porcelain, and these are displayed in the Gallery. Special commissions undertaken including commemorative items incorporating your own logo.
