BlocART was started in 2010 by Cape Town artist Kenau Botha. The wood is now sourced from recycling depots, building sites, or intercepted before it goes to a landfill. Other waste materials are also sourced from the manufacturing industry, and we try to use of as much recycled materials as possible – from the wood, the paint, and fabrics, all the way to the packaging materials.


Every piece of wood has a history – coming from homes, gardens, broken furniture or discarded shelving. This is so obviously seen during the cleaning process – when the personal histories show themselves – sometimes in the nails or screws , the many layers of paint, the drawings of children on a skirting, or the chew marks from a pet, the stains from a workbench.


The wood is cleaned and painted before the process of cutting and gluing begins. Every piece is put together, cut and finished by hand.

BlocART currently provides an income for 10 people. We love the textures and history that each piece carries, and we are so happy that we are making something beautiful from discarded materials, as we are so passionate about recycling. The application in itself is a timeous effort, and every piece speaks of the love and patience it has been crafted with.


BlocART is based in Cape Town, South Africa, and provides to numerous boutique stores/retailers nationally and internationally. All products are made to order, and we also accept larger commissions.
