I am a creator.

>> I don't like perfection! <<

My name is Sepideh (meaning 'Dawn' in Persian). I am an artist and ceramist living and working in The Hague, The Netherlands. "Making" is my passion.

I studied Artistic Research at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, Netherlands and received my Masters degree there. Before this I studied Arts & Crafts at the Art University of Isfahan – Iran. It was here that I originally learned to work professionally with ceramic.

However, it took me years before rediscovering ceramic as a medium. After years doing conceptual artworks and projects, experimenting with many different materials, I found out my passion has always been clay.

During years of working with organic materials in my art, observing Nature and studying the visual aspects of natural phenomena, I've become strongly inspired by the juxtaposition of different organic forms, structures and colours.

Using the skills that I have been developing throughout my life, I started to follow a new approach with my hands towards making things. Practicing with clay, I have began to visualize my emotions for the world, nature, life and death as factual matters in three dimensional forms.

In 2020 I started making functional pieces, including drink-ware and wearable art.


Consumerism – I truly believe we should consume less and appreciate quality over quantity to help our dear planet. I don't produce much. As a one person business I produce a small patch, but with care and passion.

I support local products in my personal life as much as I can and one of my goals is to help this idea to grow more.


Commissions – I do accept commissions and orders especially for local businesses or people who wan to have unique designs at home or work.


Packaging – I use or reuse recycled packaging materials as much as possible and creatively make it look neat. If you want to have a packaging as a gift, please mention when placing your order in the note box to me. I will make something creative and unique specially for you.
