Born in South Africa and educated in Zimbabwe, Chris Silversto first fell in love with pottery when she took some classes as a hobby. She admired the balance of functionality and beauty that could be created. In 1986 she opened Potter's Shop in Cape Town, which quickly grew into a space for artisans to practice and hone their skills in a safe, secure environment. It was these artisans who developed Potterseed's distinctive style of tactile, bead-like painting on ceramics.

Handmade in Cape Town, South Africa.
