Just the right size and look I was searching for. Other packet holders are too big and the packets just flop around. This is perfect and the look is not too funky but also not too pretty, pretty.

About

Functional fantasies in clay

Nela Ceramics became a business in 2005 in Miami, Florida when I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue my dream of being my own boss doing what I've always loved doing, designing and creating ceramic functional wares.

The whole process of centering an uneven lump of clay on the wheel, shaping, trimming, decorating, glazing and firing is currently done by one person... Me
Not easy, yet very satisfying specially every time when I open the kiln (oven) to see the final result of an intense production journey.

Most of my business comes from wholesale orders. My Etsy store helps me sell one of a kind pieces or some extras. I still feel blessed to be able to fill in other people's need from home and that is thanks to the internet and all the amazing resources like Etsy and wholesalecrafts.com available to artists who want to make a living by doing what they love doing!

Thanks for visiting my Etsy site. I'd like to hear your comments and suggestions since I do believe in co-creation and most of my work is a product of mutual co-creative efforts coming from all sources in my everyday life.
I've been living in Florida since 1997 and have been greatly influenced by the sunny and colorful ambience of the South West side of the state.

I began my pottery affair in 1990 and ever since been "stuck in the mud" in a good sense so to speak. Al my work has been tested in the microwave and dishwasher without problems. I use a safe formulated glaze for the surface that gets in contact with food.

Most of my work have been in galleries and shops all over the US.

My store here in Etsy shows a varied sampling of this work which are packed and ready to be shipped to the lucky one that buys it. The pictures will be dropped from this site after the sale but will remain in my wholesale catalogue from www.nelaceramics.com as sample pieces only for approved retailers.

Please feel free to drop me a line or two if you have any question or comment about my work.

Thanks!
