Meshack Ceramics

Meshack was born in Swaziland or eSwatini as it is now called and is of Royal descent, however the ever-present feather he wears is a symbol of the link he maintains with his rural roots.

When Meshack was a youngster, he worked as a cleaner for a potter and developed an interest in working with clay. He later went on to study Ceramic design at the Port Elizabeth Technicon and later lectured at this well known art school.

More than 30 years down that road Meshack maintains a strong collaborative relationship with other artists whom he trains and mentors.

Based in the rural Eastern Cape, South Africa, Meshack continues to work within the rich tradition of studio pottery, artist-craftsmen and produces functional pots, gifts and table ware, each a unique work of art in its own right.
