The Story of Fanglasstic
The story of Fanglasstic begins in 2010 when two sisters, Janette and Ronel, bought two kilns from a friend. We worked from home with the two kilns in the garage. The first market we attended was the Kirstenbosch Day Market.
In 2011 we expanded the business by purchasing another kiln and hiring Victoria.
In 2012 Fanglasstic won the award for Best Art Stall at the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival. We purchase another kiln in this year.
2013 sees a steady increase in business and Fanglasstic buys another kiln.
To meet ever increasing demand for Fanglasstic products in 2014 another kiln is purchased and we hire Monique.
2015 marks the most turbulent year for Fanglasstic. We have purchased 9 kilns and are still working in the garage, where only a few kilns can be used effectively. Demand started outpacing supply. It was clear that the business would have to expand or scale down operations. Near the end of 2015 Fanglasstic moved out of the house and into a brand new workshop in Zandwyk Park. This year also sees Janette leaving the business in pursuit of other passions.
Ronel’s husband, Willem, joins the business. Willem (a different Willem) and Robin join the business in 2015.
In 2016 Fanglasstic hires another employee: Lokki. Now Fanglasstic is comfortably situated in Zandwyk Park and excited for what the future holds as we continue refining our brand and products.
