I'm a ceramic artist and well-known Cape Town figure - the rooms in my B&B are named after some of the giants in the pottery world, upon which my dwarf-self now stands.
I'm also known for being an inventor. It's my joy and pleasure to create space for visitors to my gallery, studio and B&B to enjoy thoughts and flights of fancy.
I can't live without porcelain clay, pots of exotic tea and new ideas. And I'll regale you with stories of the unknown, unusual world facts and advice on just about anything under the sun.
I'm well connected with the sub-cultures of Cape Town - should you have an extraordinary social needs, I am able to make an introduction :)
Speak to me about my Cape Town ceramic tours, we visit the studios of some of Cape Town's finest potters. Or for street art join a Coffee Beans Route's tour, which I often lead.
I look forward to your arrival...
