Journey of earth and fire
Husband and wife creative team focussed on bringing you Australian made and designed pieces that come from the earth, with raw stoneware clay juxtaposed against vibrant glazes. Our designs are timeless, elegant, and modern with a refined colour palette. We aim to capture the beauty of our natural surroundings with perfectly imperfect character from our home studio in Ocean View, Queensland.
We hope like us, you see the beauty in handmade pieces and treasure them. We would love for our work to bring as much joy to you as they give to us in the making.

Look at the world through the eyes of an artist:
The calming effect;
As clay is thrown on the wheel, the clay platelets slide over each other. It’s an extraordinary sensation to have a solid form that expands or contracts between your fingers. The slippery beauty of clay is quite addictive.
It is a reasonably physical hobby. Bags of clay weight 12.5 kg, so just lifting those around is a mini-workout. The kneading of clay and upward pulls on the wheel all get the muscles going
Even if a design is to be made repeatedly there are subtle differences between each piece. Every piece of handmade pottery is genuinely unique – that’s why I love it.
After cooking meat, baking clay was the first thing that humans did to chemically alter our environment on purpose. It’s a romantic notion to think of someone digging up my pottery in a few thousand years
love of clay – and the power of touch.
