Our South African Bird range has been really popular over the last few years and while we have added some birds to the range, we havent really gone large with it. So in 2013 we are planning to introduce a new range of birds. Pictured, a preview of one of the new styles which we will introduce next year.

One of our very special clients asked us to come up with a food related clock for her organic store. The client is very special indeed, she is Mrs Erica Schofield, wife of CEO and founder Patrick Schofield. Being the lovely lady that she is, she gave us carte blanche and this is what we came up with. The store in question, is Kwalapa, a dynamic organic retaurant and deli based at the Montebello centre in Newlands that specialises in organic produce and holds a philosophy of mindfull eating. Check out their website at for upcoming events.

Jethro with Cupcakes

At Streetwires, much of our business is customised work and as such we often get exciting challenges. Cape Foods, a dynamic local company specialising in spice and sprinkles recently commissioned us to make up some cupcakes to promote their divine cake sprinkles. We started with one, and they were so happy with it they ordered another three.

Apart from the great fun we had making them, its fantastic that local companies recognise the uniqueness of this dynamic South African craft.

Thanks Gerhard Martin, for a wonderful commission and I would highly recommend a look at the Cape Foods website which you can view at
