About

tsoana Studios & Design

Welcome to tsoana Studios & Design!

tsoana, which translates to ‘sameness,’ is focused on bringing unique, quality goods and designs into the world that help inspire, provide a sense of place, and spark love.

tsoana believes creativity lives within each living being, and it’s only a matter of tapping into your creative spark to put forth your inner self and make the world a better place. We aim to help others tap into their own creativity and find their voice as we also share our own.

tsoana was created from a convergence of many experiences, goals, and dreams. After being introduced to ceramics, herbal medicine, natural dyes, and jewelry making, I felt deeply connected to all and wanted to share that love of natural and handmade with others. At the same time, I was able to learn from others, see others in their true lights, and found that we all have tsoana, sameness. We are all the same, as cliche as that may be, and we are all different - and that's truly inspiring to me and my creative processes.

Right now, tsoana is a one-woman show, although I have a wonderful support network! I have always considered myself to be a creator, a maker, a lover of art. Something about making and designing sparks excitement deep in my soul, and I just can’t get enough.




Sustainability ||
I always strive to be as sustainable as possible in our making process, from reusing water, to our packaging, to creating and promoting objects that can replace disposables. I believe that making the earth a safer and healthier place will make humans healthier and happier, too, and I'm working to do my part!


Creation ||
All ceramics pieces are thrown on the potters wheel to start and then decorated by hand with underglazes, decals, handbuilt additions, and beautiful high-fire glazes. All of the ceramic items in my shop are food, dishwasher, and microwave safe, although it's typically recommended to hand wash to ensure your pieces are safe.

All ceramic pieces are handmade and go though several firings. This means there are many opportunities for small differences from piece to piece. I am certainly not a factory so the pieces are never 'perfect', they will have little wobble here a little bump there - but there is beauty in those imperfections and it's always a wonder to behold such a unique object! I hope you love it as much as I do.




If you have questions about my other work or pieces, of course, let me know!

I hope you'll take a look around, 'like our shop', follow us on social media and stop by often. We're learning and growing and we want you along for the ride! You can also check out our adventures and loves on our website/blog and via instagram:
