Unless specified in product details, all pieces are handmade earthenware ceramics, created through slip casting; each one of them are poured and put to dry for 24 hours, then sanded and smoothed, and finally brush glazed individually by hand. They are fired twice; one 28 hours biscuit firing and one 27 hours glaze firing before becoming the unique pieces you hold in your hand.
Because of their handmade nature, all products may slightly vary in colour and weight from their representation on the website and may have small imperfections. This is the beauty of handmade products.
The glazes used are lead-free, non-toxic, thus food safe and suitable for everyday use in your kitchen.
All pieces’ bottoms are glazed for a smooth feeling and preventing them from staying wet after washing but there might be some imperfections. They may cause damage to delicate furniture if not carefully used. They are also dishwasher safe, but I recommend careful care to avoid cracks for a longer product life.
I am focusing on three collections where colours I use are the main differentiators, the shapes usually remain the same;
“Rustic” is inspired by a minimalist and natural approach to modern tableware where I love to use simple and earthy colours. They look simply elegant on your table and bring forward the beauty of your food.
“Mediterranea” is where I am digging the roots of my Mediterranean background and my longing for the sea, which explains my intensive use of shades of blues and greens. They just make me feel home and energetic at the same time with their vibrant colours.
“Abstract” is my special collection where all pieces are unique in the way that I use watercolour techniques which yield a different outcome at each glazing. Because I simply love abstract figures and the excitement each time I open the kiln to see the results J For this collection only, each product you receive is exactly what you see while ordering.
