Whether you use the tumbler for drinking or as a pen or brush holder, it’ll bring a smile to your face each and every time you see it.

1. Please choose the color of the tumbler and place an order.

Thank you for visiting my shop

I am Shelly, an art and nature addict 🙂 I create and design handmade ceramics.

I like experimenting with different techniques and constantly creating new designs.
I draw my inspiration from Mother Nature; I aim to bring nature inside, using materials that are sourced from nature and presenting images and objects which clearly represent it.

My goal is to create ceramics that not only meet the customer’s needs but also inspire some sense of nature.
Apart from ceramic work, I am also a great lover of yoga; I practice it regularly, finding my inner peace, one that inspires love and spirituality, aspects that play a large role in coming up with new designs. I also love baking and healthy food and believe that healthy fine food deserved to be served in dishes that bring out their best, and that is why I strive to make my customers ceramic pieces that will not only last but also appeal to their use.

One of my biggest influences is the sgraffito. The sgraffito is a form of decoration, typically done in plaster or stucco on walls, or in a slip, on ceramics, before firing.
Sgraffito is an Italian word meaning “to scratch” and create an image. Using the sgraffito technique I can create personalized images.

I make rustic dishes, tableware, home décor, clay baking dishes, coffee and teacups, flower vases, pots, and much more. My ceramics are known for their durability, originality, sophistication, authenticity, and of course, their beauty. I aim to provide my customers with items that are not only pleasing to the eyes but to the soul as well. The effort, attention to detail, and elegance brought out, make each item unique and a piece of art that represents reality. My customers’ satisfaction is my highest priority, I enjoy giving my customers the attention and service they deserve.

As part of caring for our planet, all my packing materials are recycled – sustainability matters to us all!
