We create functional design objects

POTTERY & POETRY is a spontaneous project by two long time friends who needed to liberate their true element spending more time creating art. We are an architect who just can't stop expressing herself through ceramics and a lawyer who writes poems since forever. So one evening we just decided to make something out of our habitual everyday patterns, something like going on vacation away from the usual. Pottery and poetry is like intuitive journey and we hope that the things we create give this feeling to others. Whether it is the ceramics or the poetry or some other art form our main desire is to inspire with beauty and infuse artistic energy in the sometimes boring everyday live.

Every "Pottery & Poetry" item is entirely handmade. Through the whole process of creation each piece has travelled through hands several times. First, it has been hand-built, dried and retouched carefully. Then, it is bisque fired in the kiln, sanded to smooth the surface, hand-glazed and fired once again. Because of all this, minor “imperfections” might occur on the surface, making each item truly unique. Furthermore, the slight variations in the shape and size of the items within the same collection makes them one of a kind pieces of art.
All items are glazed with non-toxic materials. They can be washed in a dishwasher, however careful hand washing is recommended.

Frequently asked questions
Natural variations

Since all my products are handmade, each piece is unique and there might be slight differences between each one. Sometimes the bowls might be not totally round due to the high temperature they go through for strength and durability, or the glaze-nuance might vary a bit from piece to piece, and between each fire. The weight can also sometimes vary between the same kind of pieces. I can guarantee you that I always choose as similar pieces as possible within one order. But remember, these small differences in shape, colour and weight is actually what creates the character and beauty, and emphasize the difference between hand made and industrial factory made products.

Care instructions

All my pottery is made from very high quality clay, to make sure they can easily withstand everyday use. All my pottery is dishwasher safe, but handwash is recomended.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Since I need to make sure the pottery you ordered arrives safe, it must have lots of bubble wraps surrounding it. This is the reason why It is very difficult to gift wrap your pottery. However, I am more than happy to add a hand written message from you attached to the present you bought. Please include the message in your note to Seller once you do the check out.

If you have any questions send me a convo or email me and I will answer you as soon as possible :) potteryandpoetry@gmail.com
