About Us

Prêt-á-Pot was born in 1985 and yes, we were born ready!  Nature has always been a strong inspiration to all our products which has resulted in beautiful and functional ceramics, evolving from season to season.

Using 3 different  locally sourced clays, each item is lovingly cared for by at least 6 skilled staff members, each of which leave their individual mark on the end product.  Our in-house training provides our staff with the opportunity to share their skills as well as honing new techniques.  Our products are personal, not only to those who make them, but you as well.

The organic qualities of working with these clays and glazes allows for our products to be unique, even to each other, as each piece reacts slightly differently in the kiln as well as being handmade using artisanal methods, this only adds to the uniqueness of our high quality products that we are proud to share with you.

Our home ware items are intended to be used everyday –they are not just pretty to look at, they are hardworking, functional items that can be used in the dishwasher, microwave and oven.  We like making life easy!

Our outdoor planters are high fired and are frost proof – from Coast to High Veld, these are versatile and not to mention amazing!

Prêt-á-Pot is contemporary, yet, we base our product lines on ‘old-school’ functionality, production and most importantly, on the love of ceramics in a modern and ever changing world.
