Make every day special !

Hello, My name is Vered (Hebrew for Rose).

I design and create handmade ceramics Inspired by the Mediterranean Sea & the natural beauty found in Israel.

With my creations, I wish for you to have a daily reminder to appreciate the beauty, love, and kindness around you and to be thankful for what you have.
May it inspire you too, to "Make every day special!"

Natural, simple, and functional.
All items are hand-built from scratch, using environmentally safe and natural materials from sustainable sources. Thanks to the multi-step process including two high-temperature kiln firing, all products are durable and well-suited for any use.

My offer to you is handmade ceramics, as well as in honesty, integrity, and attentive and reliable customer service, based on a high service awareness and many years of experience working with customers

This is my second career.
I worked in high-tech for many years! becoming a mother, a change in worldview, and courage led me to decide on a change of direction.
After 22 years of working long hours in high-tech, I felt it was time for a change. I wanted more time at home with my daughter and son (then 5 and 3) and to live a life more in-tune with my heart and soul. I quit!
I started ceramics as a hobby and loved it! I also started to volunteer in a ceramic workshop for those recovering from emotional crises. Creating, helping, and enjoying the little things life has to offer, truly made every day special. It felt right. It felt good even when having to deal with life’s challenges (and I did). Very soon, working in my studio became a daily thing, and here I am!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy shopping!
Vered 🌹

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

For a gift, I will gladly add a gift message from you to the receiver (free of charge).

I am also offering gift wrapping (available on check out).

All orders are packed with extra care to ensure their safe arrival, being fragile & shipped all the way from Israel.
I invest much time and packing materials that were proven safe for shipping big packages all over the world.

If despite the careful packaging you receive a broken item, please contact me immediately with a picture of the damaged items and I will send you another item in its place or issue a refund (by your choice).
It is rare that this happens! But just in case it does.

Also, I use recycled boxes as much as possible and would be happy if you recycled the waste, too.

How do I make these 100% handmade ceramc items?

Each item is hand-built from scratch by me, using the slab technique.
I knead & flatten natural clay using a rolling pin. I measure, cut & shape each piece by hand.
After drying, the fragile clay pieces go into the 1st kiln-firing that makes them stronger (bisque).
Each item is hand brushed with a few layers of a lead-free food-safe glaze. The bottom & rim are wiped for this rustic organic look and feel of the natural clay with the colorful glaze.
The 2nd kiln-firing is at a high temperature of 1200ºC/2192ºF, for durable stoneware ceramic, which is microwave, oven & dishwasher safe.
Yeah! Finely ready!
Opening the kiln is always exciting since each item is unique with its own character & beauty.
Like my mom used to say: "Patience pays."

COVID-19 Updates

Disruptions due to COVID-19 might still impact processing and shipping duration.

Orders may not arrive on the originally estimated date, due to limited international flights.
Sometimes there is a shortage of materials, that cause delays in the creation process.

Rest assured I’ll keep you updated along the way.
Please be patient as we overcome this situation and feel free to message me if you have any questions. I am here for you!

Wishing us all good health and return to a normal routine.
