Handmade ceramics for your furkids and home
Established in 2013 through pure creative curiosity, using clay as my medium I make functional items for both you and your furkids. I hope that you experience joy and comfort from the vessels I lovingly make, one ball of clay at a time.
the soenchie story
Each Soenchie piece is handmade by me, Zelda Brokensha. I am a Cape Town based ceramicist and an animal lover with a passion for creating stylish functional pieces for you and your furkids.
I live with my husband and two furkids and love having a home studio, where I spend my days (and many early mornings) potting and listening to podcasts. My other hobbies include birding, gardening and I love spending time with friends and family.
As with many of our much loved local artisans, I started doing pottery as a hobby. A fun and creative outlet once a week that I looked forward to very much! Soon after creating 2 bowls for my very own boys Tiny and Rio, I received a few requests for custom bowls from friends and family and soon found myself prepping for my very first market. Now I happily craft every day, adding new items as I develop my skills and discover what brings joy to our home, and hopefully to yours too.
