RIALHEIM & ROOI ROSE CELEBRATING 75 YEARS OF BRAVERY

Rialheim is still in its infant years. We recently turned 4 years old and like most young souls Rialheim loves the opportunity to play and draw inspiration from the stylish, the extraordinary, the older and wiser souls, as we discover our own path and our own magical world. At the end of last year I got a call from Rooi Rose asking if we would like to take part in their 75th Birthday Celebration by designing a limited collection of decor and serve ware items for them. The invitation immediately took me back to the memory of when we unpacked my grand mothers attic 3 years ago; during our move to Clairvaux, Robertson.                     After 27 years...

Be Brave and Love

LOVE IS BRAVE Whilst in our Linden store a few weeks back I helped a young man to choose a gift for a new love prospect. The poor man was so nervous that it took an hour to select the right gift. I recall going through a similar process the first time I bought my husband a gift. It took real bravery to put myself out there and to show him that I loved him.  It is therefore so fitting that our message for the month of Love is ‘Love is Brave’. In a world where time seems to speed up annually and where it is so easy to live ‘past’ the people we love the most it often takes...

A Brave New World

Do you believe in fate or some may call it magic? That the roads you take and choose ultimately lead to the place you were meant for?         You know its fate when your own dog is the splitting image of Rialheim’s iconic ceramic Pup. Joining the Rialheim team feels like it was always written in the stars for me. And after learning the skills and lessons fate wanted me to learn I have finally arrived at my destination…at my magical destination. Where dreams come true and playing is part of work. Rialheim was based off its founder Rial Visagie’s need to give his creativity a voice. He bravely went on the journey of forming a company...

Don’t stop believing…

#Dreambelievefly     This month we celebrate our 4th birthday. By the      standards used to classify children we are now officially ‘pre-schoolers’ and as ‘pre-schoolers’ we have now reached the age where we should be able to comprehend the difference between reality and make-believe. Let me start my blog assuring you, dear reader, that for any person working at Rialheim we never want to be able to comprehend this difference. Rialheim is built on make-believe. At our core is the belief in magic, something that our founder, Rial Visagie, taught us. The tale of Rialheim is something akin to a fairy-tale… Rialheim started as a ceramic factory with the business objective of manufacturing ceramics for other designers. Today this...

Discover Rialheim Land By Teresa Lizamore

Celebrating 4 years of crafting  Rialheim - Land    My first visit to Rialheim land in Robertson was unforgettable. Upon invitation I arrived at the Clairvaux estate to discuss the possibility of a unique outdoor sculpture garden. Driving onto the estate I was confronted by the magnificent Clairvaux manor house dating back to the early 19th century, surrounded by the breathtaking Langeberg mountains. White dinosours and pink pigs were roaming the gardens! A flock of miniature white birds flew past and settled on the roof of the ceramic factory. Some even hovered in the air in front of the factory window, as if trying to see what was happening inside. Next I saw a flying pig and a sign Do...
