Diana Ferreira

Handmade glass beads are combined with ceramic vessels to make functional homeware.

Cape Town-based Diana Ferreira runs a small production studio were she manufactures moulds and slip-cast ceramics, mainly focussing on coloured clay bodies. The contrast between the shiny glaze and the soft sheen of the bare clay offers both a visual and tactile experience, with high-quality finishes.

Restrained in shape and decoration, the clean and classical lines in her ranges keep the designs timeless.
