Digby Hoets has been teaching pottery and making his own pots since 1973. Many South African potters and ceramists have started their careers in his studio and continue to work there. Digby's home and studio are located on a 2 hectare property in Midrand's Carlswald valley - a tranquil, green enclave within an area which is now better known for high density housing developments, office blocks and shopping centres. 

An article Digby Hoets: On a Grand Scale, written by South African artist, sculptor and writer Wilma Cruise, appeared in the British ceramics journal Ceramic Review in 2002.
