About DustCeramics

Sales 502
On Etsy since 2016

Dream Big. Trust your heart. Do what you love and do it often.

Dreams. The heart dreams and the Universe answers. That is how one day we left all we knew in cold Eastern Europe and transplanting ourselves in the hot Mojave Desert. It is dust and heat and beauty and nature and space and sun and freedom to fulfill our dreams in creation. The desert and the rocks are ceramics in geologic time and our inspirational and joy.

Dust Ceramics is a wife-husband collaboration. Joanna immigrated to the US on a genius art visa. She started her career as a painter and illustrator of magazines and book covers. Opening the first plant-based restaurant in Warsaw led to work as a food stylist. She stumbled into ceramics when she couldn’t find props for a photo session and the dream begins. Joanna inspired her husband to immerse in ceramics and he quit his office job in pursuit of the dream.

Joanna and Artur live in the middle of nowhere outside of Joshua Tree with two dogs and two cats and a studio and the heat and the light and the space and the dream to create beautiful objects.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

If you desire a custom order, please contact me and we can talk about what you have in mind. These will take additional time, so please contact me in advance. Custom orders usually take around 1-2 months to create. In some cases a deposit is required beforehand.

I love to listen to my clients and help them to be exact in their needs and wishes. If you want any of my designs in a different sizes or colors, please send me a convo and I will do my best to make you happy.

Wholesale availability

Please contact me at joanna@dustceramics.com for more information.

Care instructions

Many of our items are dishwasher safe, but hand washed in warm soapy water is recommended. Most of my pieces can be used in the microwave with some exception. Please use caution when removing as they do retain heat and will be hot.

Size, color, shape

Due to the handmade nature of each piece, the size, shape and color is approximate and each piece varies just a bit. I take my time to ensure that each photo listed is an accurate representation of the finished piece.


Due to rural area where we live and work (HiDesert in California) and our local Post Office opening hours we only ship on TUESDAY and THURSDAY. We pack all parcels a day before shipping days.
If I receive an order early enough in shipping day I can sometimes send it out the same day. You will receive email confirmation of your shipment with a tracking code.

International shipping (outside of USA)

International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information.
