MashT Design: Add Style With a Sophisticated Ceramics Collection

The little details in a house can certainly make it feel more like a home. But when a brand has an authentic African design aesthetic with a pull towards sustainability and preserving African craftsmanship, the pieces produced tell a marvellous story that would fit into any home.

The latest Ceramics Collection from MashT Design does so effortlessly, bringing texture, colour and spice into the dining room.

Presents from Joburg

“Presents from Joburg” is the first ceramic collection from MashT consisting of 6 pieces; serving trays, a vase, a planter, salt and pepper shakers and side plates. This is a way for you to add style and to bring MashT into your home. The reason “Presents from Joburg” is launching with items centred around serving tools is to foster the idea of community, coming together at the end of the day and sharing a meal with your chosen community. It’s about treasuring those moments spent together around the dinner table and sharing.

The quintessentially African aesthetic of Mash.T’s designs is a result of Thabisa Mjo’s passion for working with artisans that have mastered traditional skills such as weaving and beading.

“For me, arts and crafts, and anything handmade, represent luxury, and my aim is to merge these traditional production methods with forward-thinking design.”

To this end, Mjo is committed to working with small businesses that are preserving traditional skills. For the designer, it’s as important to help sustain and grow the businesses with which she partners, as it is her own. “I can’t just be designing for the sake of designing, or because it looks pretty online. Building a business that will change people’s lives in a meaningful way, and that will outlive me – that is my passion.”

Organic Flair

We love the vibrancy of the ceramics collections which can be used to bring a natural and organic flair to your table. The intricate shapes and curved out forms add interest and will elevate your experience at home, whether it’s an intimate dinner with your loved one, or a complete soiree with those closest to you.

By working closely with crafters and other designers, the studio continues to do what it is most passionate about – creating sustainable economic opportunities for African creative makers through collaborative product design.
