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!

Shipping -
On this issue that is not in my control, I wish to operate with honesty and integrity.

I ship internationally from Israel and do my best to make it a good experience for you.
Some of the shipping options offered by shops from the US and Canada, are not available in my shop since it is located in Israel (calculated shipping, estimated delivery date supplied by carrier). I apologize for that.
I’m always looking for ways to reduce the shipping duration and cost.
You’re guaranteed to receive free shipping upgrades when possible or a refund if I’m able to significantly reduce the actual shipping cost. This I promise you!

How do I make it?

Creating handmade 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 technic).
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!"
