The Luna C brands – Luna del Mar, Madame Luna, Luna Porcelain and Luna Décor- are inspired by Mother Nature and influenced by beauty. Our porcelain is of a very high quality and is translucent with a rich, creamy, smooth texture. Because the porcelain is fired at a very high temperature, the functional pieces are oven, microwave and dishwasher safe.
Luna C is made up of a dynamic team of individuals whose passion, commitment, ideas and involvement have played an integral part in the success of our company.
A brief history about Luna C from the “Big Boss” and Designer Lynne Lange…
“I am very creative and have been a ceramic designer and business owner for over 20 years, firstly with my own factory in Johannesburg, producing terracotta and majolica Italian influenced ceramics and then I moved to Cape Town to put more energy into ceramic design, rather than running production. I spent many months developing ideas for a range of porcelain that was different and beautiful as well as functional and decorative. Porcelain was not produced or worked with in South Africa on a larger scale so my next move was to go to China to access the high-quality materials and skilled labour available there. I found myself in the town of Dehua, high up in the mountains of Fujian, in the south-east countryside of China. In Dehua I discovered that the village had an abundance of porcelain factories and studios producing the most beautiful sculptural porcelain and dinnerware. I was in paradise as I am passionate about clay. In my hotel room, there was a magazine featuring prominent sculptors in Dehua and it featured two brothers, who had a small factory producing cultural Buddha and other figurines. My translator called them up and we went to see them along with some sea urchins and a few other shells that I brought along with me that I wanted to reproduce in porcelain – and so began our signature range Luna del Mar!”
