Anthony Shapiro

Over a career that spans 3 decades, Anthony Shapiro has become well known as a prolific maker, retailer, gallerist, curator and teacher. He has contributed to developing and deepening the public’s interest in ceramics as an art form.


Influenced by modern architecture and design, and the natural environment, Shapiro’s ceramics are mainly hand thrown, and others hand built. His works, recognised by their simple, iconic form have been featured in stores such as The Conran Store in London, Paris and New York, Anthrologie and ABC Carpet and Home, a testament to the strength of South African ceramics. Through Shapiro’s outlets he creates a platform for ceramic artists from all over South Africa, specifically the Western Cape to gain exposure and share their works with new and seasoned collectors.
