Rialheim & @home celebrate four years working together with a bespoke new collection of unique tableware jewellery
Tableware jewellery - the new collection by Rialheim for @home

Tableware jewellery - the new collection by Rialheim for @home

Rialheim will make its fourth appearance in selected @home stores countrywide this December. In celebration of our relationship which started in 2015 we have collaborated with the team at @home to bring you a collection of unique tableware jewellery to bring homegrown sophistication to your festive table this season. 

 

As a proud local supplier to @home, we wanted to celebrate the handmade element that occurs in each product by highlighting it even more accentuating each items individuality and allowing the natural power of ceramics to flow more freely. To achieve this we have developed a tableware accessories collection with three different looks. 

Scratched matte black with bronze rim   Each item was individually scratched by our Artisans to ensure the uniqueness of each item. It is our aim that this freeness in making resonates with the @home end user. At the same time we wanted the bronze and matte black to flow naturally into each other. This colour combination is dedicated to our African culture and heritage.

Scratched Sky Grey with bronze rim   This colour combination also features the handcrafted texture, but what we love about the new Sky Grey, featuring in our new collection  Evolution , is the combination of matte black and white that naturally fuse together in the kiln highlighting the handmade texture on each piece.

The Big Bang white and black with an exposed nude clay rim   The Big Bang glazing technique provides each item with a unique look and allowed our glazing team to play with white and matte black. We combined it with the exposed nude terracotta to balance the strong glazing technique. Each piece in this collection is truly one-of-a-kind.

“Our journey with Rialheim has been a truly inspirational one. Not only is it amazing to see a young local talented brand turn into an international success story but their passion for developing and inspiring people is closely aligned with @home’s core values. We are very proud to be associated with such amazing people.”

-      Lelani Adamson, @home Buying Manager.

 

As Rialheim celebrates six years of #DreamBelieveFly we felt it relevant to celebrate the people whose skilful hands create the uniqueness in each product. This collection is a true reflection of each artisan’s talent and the magic of African Clay. We salute the team members who have grown from a gardener to one of our best artisans in the studio today, the person who started as a packer in our studio to heading up our dispatch department today, just to name a few amazing journeys. As a company, we believe in all of their dreams and are extremely proud of the development so far and excited to see this evolve in further as their skills develop.

Rialheim regularly talks about the pivotal role @home played in our journey as a company. It’s this partnership that has allowed more people access to our products and story by featuring us in their stores. It’s a partnership that has allowed Rialheim to simply move beyond an artisanal brand while opening doors that we were only dreaming of. This has enabled us to tackle big projects, both locally and internationally. 

The new Rialheim collection will be available in these @home stores from 6 December:

Cape Town: V&A Waterfront, Cavendish Square, Century City, Tygervalley, V&A Breakwater Centre

Durban: Gateway

Johannesburg: Design Quarter, Mall of Africa, Melrose Arch, Sandton

Eating for your gut and mindful festive feasting: Interview with Marlien Wright 
Rialheim Marlien Wright

Marlien Wright is an avid yogi, nutrition coach, food writer and mother of two. She launched her first cookbook The Yoga Kitchen: 100 Easy Superfood Recipes in 2016 and has recently launched her second wellness orientated cookbook, The Mandala Kitchen: 100 recipes to heal and restore the gut. This is the second time that Marlien has collaborated with Rialheim in her books using our bespoke serveware for styling and serving. We recently met with Marlien to discuss her latest book and what’s to come.

 Congratulations on launching your second cookbook, tell us a bit more about the book.

Thank you, my second book, The Mandala Kitchen focuses on eating for your best Gut Health. Good gut health translates into a strong immune system, natural weight management, better mood and reduced inflammation.

 

What's your favourite recipe from the book?

That’s a devious question and very difficult to answer, but I can nominate the Sesame & Miso Chicken – which is definitely a crowd pleaser, as well as the Chocolate Pots which is pure yumminess - minus the guilt.

 

This is the second time that you have worked with Rialheim for your cookbooks, what’s the relationship been like and why do you enjoy working with our products? 

I absolutely love working with Rialheim, the ceramics inspire me to create beautiful dishes and they are so wonderfully unique, cheeky and beautiful. I also love the Rialheim team and their philosophy of collaboration and bravery. I am very proud to have a relationship with Rialheim and look forward to celebrating their delightful pieces in the future, I just know when I see a new collection from Rialheim it will put a huge grin on my face.

 

When you’re not cooking up recipes for a new cookbook, you’re also a busy yoga teacher and nutritional coach. How do you strike a balance and what can we expect to see from you next year? Any new projects you would like to share? 

I am a mom of two little girls which keeps me very busy, but when there is time, I enjoy reading, knitting, photography, walking or hiking. I am always working towards simplifying my life, and finding joy in the everyday rituals and simplicity, it is my greatest challenge! With that in mind it has inspired me to dedicate my 3rd cookbook to really simple nourishing meals as well as the therapeutic, mindful and zen aspect of cooking and eating.

 

What’s your ultimate comfort food?

I love potatoes, and after years of them getting a bad rap, we now know that they are actually fabulous gut health food, especially once cooked and cooled – potato salad here we come! I really love a baked potato, served with a homemade slaw…or homemade stews, they speak to me!

 

The festive season is notorious for over indulging - what are your tips for feasting without putting on the kilos? Whats your favourite Christmas dish? 

Well my best piece of advice would be to follow a Mediterranean approach to the big Christmas lunch, start with a salad, then a vegan dish such as stuffed mushrooms, then the main course of either roasted Turkey, Lamb and/ or pasture fed Ham or a vegetarian main such as , and then fishing off with a desert, give yourself a good 45 min between each course and choose organic & pasture fed only – always strive for quality above quantity. My favourite Christmas dish is roasted Brussels Sprouts dressed with a sprinkling of Pecorino cheese, olive oil, lemon juice and sundried onions…so yummy

 One quote to live by? 

“The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.” Thich Nhat Hahn – to me this translates into shifting my focus away from my own issues and worries and directing it towards they only thing that really matters…our relationships with our loved ones. Namaste!

 

Where can people buy the book?

The Mandala Kitchen is available from all major book stores such as Exclusive Books, as well as online retailers Takealot.com & Yuppiechef.com
