Handmade Ceramics
    wheel-thrown and shaped by hand

Our passion is clay.

And over the years, we learned that there's something magical about turning a simple piece of raw material into a beautiful artwork.
These interior artifacts can be either practical or ornamental, capable of turning any regular home into a very unique home.
Our ceramics are all 100% handmade by local artisans, masters in the art of clay shaping and hand painting, so you can say that any item made by us and purchased by you is limited edition - how awesome is that?

We seek to always bring new and exciting patterns into our designs, yet never forgetting our roots, by using traditional portuguese techniques and knowledge, that came from our ancestors based in this rural county in Portugal - São Pedro do Corval -, known as the Iberian Capital of Clay and most famous terracotta style pottery center in Portugal.

Thus, our small family business thrives to offer the highest-quality ceramics made for all craft lovers around the world who share the same enthusiasm about clay based products, as we do.
