Welcome to my shop.
My name is Vered (Hebrew for Rose).

VIBceramics is a one-woman business.
A boutique ceramics studio.

Sustainable handmade ceramics, inspired by the Mediterranean Sea and the beauty of nature here in Israel.

The plates and bowls I make are relatively large, influenced by the Middle Eastern hospitality culture, where there are often family meals with plenty of home-cooked, delicious and comforting food, made with love โ™ฅ.

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

For a gift, I will gladly add a gift message from you to the receiver.

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, you must contact me on THE DAY OF DELIVERY with a picture of the damaged item and I will send you another item in its place or issue a refund (by your choice). Unfortunately, the courier will not take responsibility otherwise.

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 1200ยบC/2192ยบF, for durable stoneware ceramic, which is microwave, dishwasher, & oven 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."

* Dinner Plate - Approx. 10-10.5" / 25.5-26.5 cm diameter.

Estimated processing time

I work alone in my small boutique ceramic studio. The processing time is influenced by the number of items in your order and in other orders, I am working on. I do my best to work on orders and create ceramic dishes as fast as I can without risking the quality. On big orders, I will be updating you along the way and responding to every question and message you send.

Care instructions

All VIBceramics dishes are hand-built from scratch with natural clay and lead-free food-safe glaze, and kiln-fired twice at a high temperature (stoneware).
Durable and sustainable.

All dishes are dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe, and oven-safe (heating only).

In general,
Stoneware is heat-safe to 450ยฐF / 232ยฐC.
It can go from the freezer to the oven.
Stoneware's superior heat retention makes it perfect for oven-to-table serving, keeping your food warm for meals.
It can NOT be exposed to a broiler/grilling element or another direct heat source.

Payment options

Since August 18, 2020, My shop joined Etsy payment in order to allow you the convenience of paying by credit card (which according to surveys is the preference of buyers).

For now, PayPal is not available. I hope it is not a problem for you.
