These clay masterpieces are not only aesthetically pleasing, but will most certainly have your guests asking after them. Their unique story of handmade in Africa, then shipped to the world, is a great conversation starter. Each piece is beautifully hand crafted and will add elegance and something special to mealtimes.

All our handmade pieces use locally sourced clay, passing through the hands of at least 6 artisans before being ready for the kiln.  Each artisan lovingly adds their own unique touch before a firing in the kiln. The intense heat is the key in the creation of each piece and dictates the nuances of each colour.  True alchemy through fire.

Each piece of our ceramic service ware range is artisanally made with the utmost love and care. Due to the handmade nature of our products, each piece is unique with no two pieces ever being the same.  Herein lies the true beauty of the handmade product, its perfect imperfections!  These should be celebrated as a testament to the love and hard work that go into making something so incredibly beautiful. Our handmade products are an alternative to mass produced ceramic design.
