Welcome to my shop 😊
In my shop you can find handmade ceramics to "Make every day special!"
Natural. Simple. Functional.

Handmade pottery dinnerware (stoneware), home decorations and jewelry Inspired by the sea and nature, made of natural clay and colored in Mediterranean colors, .
All items are hand built from scratch (slab technique) by me in my home studio, using environmentally safe and natural materials from sustainable sources. Thanks to multi-step process including two high-temperature kiln firing, all products are durable and well-suited for any use. All ceramics are microwave, oven and dishwasher safe.
I find that handmade ceramics have special character with their slight variations, small “imperfections", and distinct marks from the handmade process, which make each piece unique.

Knowing that my work is out there being used and enjoyed, is truly as awesome as the creation process itself.

Feel free to contact me with any question: info [!at] VIBceramics.com
I am here for you!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy shopping!

Make every day special !

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

I design and create handmade ceramics inspired by the Mediterranean and the natural beauty found here, in The Land of 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, simple, functional.
All items are hand-built from scratch, using environmentally safe and natural materials from sustainable sources. Thanks to multi-step process including two high-temperature kiln firing, all products are durable and well-suited for any use.
I find that handmade ceramics have special character with their slight variations, small “imperfections", and distinct marks from the handmade process, which make each piece unique.

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 girl and boy (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 very 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 home studio became a daily thing, and here I am!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy shopping!

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 Matt color with the shiny glaze.
The 2nd kiln-firing is at a high temperature of 1200°C, for stoneware durable ceramic ware, that 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!"
