Can your pieces be packed and shipped as a gift?

I’m very happy to see that my ceramics are often gifted as a present for a loved one.

When you buy at my studio, I use all my skills and imagination to create lovely package, using natural materials like grey paper, tissue paper, jute twine and dried plants of the green surroundings. 

When shipping is involved, I do my best to wrap the pieces in a nice package. Still, avoiding damage during shipping is priority.

How do you create your pieces?

It takes at least two weeks to create one piece of ceramics. The first stage is creating the shape. Depending on the desired effect, I use different clay techniques. Some of my ceramic pieces are handmade, using pinch pot technique (with my fingers and a simple hand tools to create the shape). Others are made with a slab, plaster moulds or a pottery wheel.

When the shape is ready, the clay needs to get bone-dry. This takes about one week. Then, I put my piece into the kiln for the first firing (at 900°C). This “bisque” firing lasts for 48 hours. The result is hard, white clay that can be glazed.

Then, my favourite part of the job begins: The decoration. I like to mix different materials and glazing techniques so the ceramic piece to make each piece one of its kind. My works reflect my mood, my emotions, travel impressions and nature images. That’s why I call it emotional landscapes.

After glazing, the piece is fired for the second time (at 1100-1300°C). If all goes well, I get a shiny, waterproof piece of handmade ceramics ready to be shipped.

Are your pieces handmade?

Yes, they are. That is why they can slightly differ in size, shape or color. The differences are the natural and expected effect of handmade products.
