About Us

Oclaysions Staff
Team Oclaysions
Meet the creative team

Oclaysions is a local women’s collective, creating elegant hand-made porcelain homeware and bespoke gifts for special occasions. 

Oclaysions started with three partners  bringing deep and complimentary skills, as potters, artists, designers, and teachers to the business.

We have since employed two wonderful women full time as well as a part time staff member.

We love what we do; drawing on our many years of collective experience in hand building in clay to create an original and beautiful range of products.  

We make our product from scratch, using paper porcelain, hand building and firing to make feather light, original creations that are durable, functional, and appealing.  Our pieces often have a botanical theme as we draw inspiration from the beauty of the Western Cape

We delight in working in partnership with our clients to design individually made pieces to suit their requirements, from a single personalised platter to over a hundred hand painted honey jars.

Our vision is to create objects of beauty and value while also contributing to the development of our surrounding communities through training and employment opportunities. 


 We love having Ntombi’s cheerful, hardworking presence in the studio, especially her eclectic music choices. 

Ntombi has helped enormously to grow our business and it has been a great pleasure to watch her skills  grow and develop.  She is particularly good at glazing and building too.


Sylvia has been a huge asset in our studio.

She is a quiet,  meticulous worker with a sensitive handling and deep knowledge of clay.  She is skilled at decorating too and builds beautifully
