John Newdigate Ceramics

John Newdigate produces functional ceramics that incorporate art, design and imagination, using the ever-changing ocean as a constant source of inspiration.

Successfully selling in galleries both locally and abroad, Swellendam-based ceramicist John Newdigate designs once-off pieces in addition to designs for mass production. Using techniques of slip casting, carving and painting, he crafts in high-fired vitrified porcelain (particularly for its durability, light weight and translucence) resulting in several ranges of fine, brightly coloured ceramics. Each piece is unique albeit related to the next, and can be found at retail outlets such as Ebony Design, Dorp St. Gallery, Potter's Shop and Africa Nova.
