Sharon Mitrie
My name is Sharon Mitrie. Over the past 30 years I have run my studio in the east of Pretoria. Visitors are always welcome, since, surrounding the studio is the flourishing Garden Root Nursery. In the studio one can view my completed works. Orders can be placed for any specialized commissions such as dinner ware, plaques, pots, murals to beautify indoor and outdoor walls, and anything you can’t find anywhere else.
Teaching is my speciality. Throwing on the potter wheel is my passion and imparting this knowledge to beginners is so much fun for them and for me. Giving advanced instructions is more serious, taking throwing to a whole new level. Most other hand-working techniques are tackled during monthly classes or during 3-hourly sessions, when “messing with clay” becomes a challenge and yields fantastic results. I also teach underprivileged children. The aim is to create awareness of clay and develop skills in the community . This happens with the aid of welfare organizations sponsorship.
