Rondebosch potters market

For more years than I can remember, I've been going to the bi-annual potters market in Rondebosch, usually on the 3rd weekend of March and then again 3rd weekend of November.

In those days it involved prams and babies, most importantly balancing the baby and the purchases attached to the pram and then with a certain skill, loosing neither over the rough terrain.

We would arrive early to purchase 2nds (with imperfections), those were the days of Lovell Friedman's exquisite green platters and Diane Retief's vibrant colourful painted ones- lately I've purchased a few precious small bowls from John Bauer, but this year nothing new, except for one lady, her work below..

Gorgeous bowls- Miro inspired?

John Bauer's latest work

Set the alarm and arrive well before 8 am to get those bargains, see you next year March..... a little bit later, closer to 9 am, outside the coffee stand.
