What began as a combination of a hobby and a love of ceramics, turned into a multi award-winning business, known for its unique and durable designs.

Under the guidance of renowned Mervyn Gers, Mervyn Gers Ceramics have opened up multiple branches internationally however, its home studio in Cape Town still prides itself in being proudly South African.

With a desire to embody being proudly South African, Mervyn Gers Ceramics are dedicated to supporting local job creation, and have a phenomenal team of 45 behind their uniquely handcrafted products made from clay that is mixed in-house. And the final creations? Unique glazed tableware.
