In our little studio in rural Te Puna, (Tauranga) New Zealand we hand make small runs of mid-fired ceramics, using a slip-casting production process.
Starting out as pure white New Zealand (slip) clay, each piece is trimmed, smoothed and glazed by hand before firing in our electric kilns.
For some of our work, we tint the clay body with oxides and sand foraged from local beaches. This gives a unique colour and texture to the clay, which we finish by half dipping in transparent glaze.
Design inspiration comes from the landscapes, geology and flora that we see around us and we celebrate organic shapes and rustic finishes.
Our aim is to craft handmade items that make everyday rituals more special and intentional. To help create moments of mindfulness and the chance to slow down and enjoy simple pleasures.
We hope you enjoy our ceramics as much as we do!
