About

A love of the sea and pottery has created Beachcomber Pots.

Gwyneth and Dominic, a mother and son team, make each piece by hand from South African clays in their studio in misty Hilton, South Africa.

Meet Gwyneth

The founder behind Beachcomber Pots, Gwyneth has always loved the sea.

Gwyneth has a deep connection with the earth and collects gifts from nature.
 
Her collection of shells, feathers, stones, seed pods and other treasures inspire her work and can be seen reflected in her pottery.

When she was a child she dug up clay from the garden and made pots to dry in the sun.  Her mom, an artist, noticed her interest and introduced her formally to pottery as a teenager. Sadly, life got in the way and she did not pursue this passion when she grew up.

Gwyneth’s love for pottery has been rediscovered and it has created a force within her like the sea – beautiful and unstoppable.

Meet Dominic

Dominic is a gaming enthusiast in almost all its forms, from video games old and new, to board games, card games and most things in between. He also loves reading books, articles, lists, you name it. Being a lover of technology he also enjoys messing around in Photoshop, and making mobile apps too.

Though it may not always show in his ceramic creations, he also loves geometry when it comes to design and playing around with different angles, he also often experiments with merging an art form with ceramics, such as with his origami inspired ceramic birds.
