Make every day special !

Hello, My name is Vered (Hebrew for Rose).

I design and create handmade ceramics Inspired by the Mediterranean Sea & the natural beauty found in Israel.

With my creations, I wish for you to have a daily reminder to appreciate the beauty, love, and kindness around you and to be thankful for what you have.
May it inspire you too, to "Make every day special!"

Natural, minimal and functional.
All items are hand-built from scratch, using environmentally safe and natural materials from sustainable sources. Thanks to the multi-step process including two high-temperature kiln firing, all products are durable and well-suited for any use.

My offer to you is handmade ceramics, as well as in honesty, integrity and attentive and reliable customer service, based on a high service awareness and many years of experience working with customers

This is my second career.
I worked in high-tech for many years! becoming a mother, a change in worldview and courage led me to decide on a change of direction.
After 22 years of working long hours in high-tech, I felt it was time for a change. I wanted more time at home with my daughter and son (then 5 and 3) and to live a life more in-tune with my heart and soul. I quit!
I started ceramics as a hobby and loved it! I also started to volunteer in a ceramic workshop for those recovering from emotional crises. Creating, helping and enjoying the little things life has to offer, truly made every day special. It felt right. It felt good even when having to deal with life’s challenges (and I did). Very soon, working in my studio became a daily thing, and here I am!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy shopping!
Vered 🌹

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

All orders are wrapped as a gift! ... with ♥, and packed with extra care to ensure their safe arrival, being fragile and shipped all the way from Israel.

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

If in spite of the careful packaging you will receive a broken item, please write to me and I will send you another item in its place.

How do I make it?

Creating hand-built ceramics is a bit like making homemade cookies :)
I knead & flatten clay using a rolling pin. I measure, cut & shape each piece by hand (slab technique).
After drying the fragile clay pieces go into a 1st kiln-firing that makes them strong (Bisque).
In my designs I use lead-free food-safe glazes, leaving the outside unglazed for a rustic style, that combines the natural clay matte color with the shiny glaze.
The 2nd kiln-firing is at a high temperature of 1200°C, for stoneware durable ceramic ware, which are microwave, oven & dishwasher safe.
Yeah! Finely ready!
Opening the kiln is always exciting "How did it come out?
Each item is unique with its own character & beauty.
Like my mother used to say: "Patience pays”.
