ALL FIRED UP
WELCOME TO THE ANNE RIMBAULT POTTERY STUDIO
HOME OF 'ALL FIRED UP'
Anne qualified as a potter in the late 1970’s, and besides a few years in advertising and some overseas travel, has been teaching and making pots in clay ever since.
Her studio is in Bordeaux, near to Sandton, Randburg, Hyde Park, Bryanston and Craighall.
She's a member of Ceramics Southern Africa and has been teaching pottery for over thirty six years. She's been running the popular Corporate and Saturday Team-building Workshops for over ten years.
The studio regularly undertakes commissions, including their specialty tagines, and more recently, restaurant dinnerware. In Anne's own work, she focuses on Porcelain, particularly thrown dinnerware. She's also spent several years focusing on Rhino inspired Ceramics, raising funds to help fight poaching.
The All Fired Up Pottery Studio in Northern Johannesburg is easily accessible to all students. Whether you’re a first-timer, on a team-building mission, looking to buy a tagine, we'd love to help you.
“Pottery is a dynamic art form, constantly evolving as it responds to newly developed techniques and changing aspirations of potters and students”
- Tony Birks ‘The complete Potter’s companion'

Open Saturday Workshops
Pottery is a great way to relieve stress and explore your creativity - play with clay, discover a new hobby and meet fellow potters.
In Anne's own work, she prefers functional pieces, inspired by her love of cooking and entertaining. She enjoys making multi-functional pots, where lids invert as bowls, or bowls and lids work either way up.
"I'm preoccupied with throwing porcelain dinnerware that is translucent enough to see my fingers through."
Anne's porcelain studio is in a tranquil setting, viewing the garden, and her decoration is mostly inspired by nature, including seascapes, tree bark, rivers and landscapes.
She is also experimenting with handmade porcelain pots, including noodle bowls and hanging lampshades.
