Franschhoek Wine Valley

David Walters at the Ceramics Gallery Franschhoek

The studio of David Walters at the Ceramics Gallery in Franschhoek offers visitors an insight into the production of studio ceramics, where David can be seen at work. Using white clays like stoneware and porcelain, the work is thrown on the wheel, and fired in a gas reduction kiln on the premises. David designs plates, bowls, and other tableware that is used in local restaurants. The gallery comprises three intimate showrooms where recent work is offered for sale.
