We are a Cape Town based studio making one off, highly translucent slip cast porcelain and stoneware vessels. Studio works have been distilled from Katherine Glenday's long history as a porcelain maker and more recently extended with new designs from Alistair Blair. 


A hundred years ago the studio was the blacksmith’s forge for the fishing village of Kalk Bay. Today we think of ourselves as ‘The Light Forge’.


All our work is for sale through the website and various outlets in Cape Town, London, New York and Miami.

Our functional vessels are inspired by the natural world and its shifting processes. We pay great attention to form and finish and each mark arrives as an individual gesture in the making process. No one vessel in a series is exactly the same as the next and this is how we maintain and share a mindful quality to those small, precious daily domestic rituals.
