Mervyn Gers Ceramics officially started operating as a business on Friday 1 April 2011 when Mervyn relocated his pottery studio to 4 Dorsetshire Street in Paarden Eiland.
Mervyn’s vision was to create a leading ceramic brand known for its innovation, strength and durability. In ten years, Mervyn Gers Ceramics has become synonymous with high-end handmade, artisanal tableware.
Since then, the remarkable increase in product demand and the related growth in turnover has led to the sourcing and training of several new artisans.
Today the company provides work for 40 employees.

Our staff are highly skilled, and many are artists in their own right. We train our team on site and also provide opportunities for them to grow and acquire new skills.
We have an exceptionally low staff turnover and see our investment in our people as our principal business asset.
