We are Hestemarí and Hermiene Ferreira, second-generation potters and co-founders of Three Potters and a Painter. Our studio is based in the heart of the Winelands, Stellenbosch, South Africa.
We consider ourselves a dynamic sister-duo who have set out to not only challenge but change the conventional approaches to the ceramic design process. Seeking to go beyond the visual and tactile, our philosophy is one that crosses boundaries. This is a delicate endeavour that flourishes when traditional design, which contains the essence of pottery, and the contemporary, which embodies modern culture, are harmoniously synthesized. All our ceramics are masterfully and attentively crafted by hand, attuned to the details of the world they are about to become a part of.

Throughout the years we have had the privilege of working alongside some of the country’s most phenomenal chefs, extraordinary restaurants, prestigious wine farms, world-renown game reserves, and exceptional florists. Together, we create distinguished ranges that epitomize the specialized needs of each client. Whether it is a magnificent vessel commissioned to become the focal point of a room, tableware destined to be the canvas for a chef, or an elegant vase fated to be a beholder of a beautiful bouquet of flowers, each item betokens the rhythms, nuances and details of the world around them. We research, design, and develop prototypes in order to produce exclusive ranges unprecedented within the industry.LEAVE US A MESSAGE
