Collection: Ourea.

Ceramic pieces in this category are hand-built and hand-carved. They are inspired with the Japanese hand-forming technique called Kurinuki, which involves the hollowing out of a solid clay form by carving. 

The name Ourea is given because in Greek mythology Ourea are the spirits of the mountains. Ourea ceramics exalts the texture and beauty of the raw clay, reminiscent of mountain landscapes and natural terrain.

The hand building technique allows for a soft tactile organic form that I like. I only use my hands, a clay and some simple wooden tools. My ceramic pieces are holding evidence of the human hand and I hope these preserved histories allow the viewer to connect with its deeply human, handmade origin. When making, I am looking towards a realistic and thoughtful way to endorse sustainability, as well as to keep myself engaged as a lover of things and as an artist.

All pieces are high fired Stoneware which makes them non-porous, strong and durable for the regular use. Due to the handmade nature of each piece, there may be inconsistencies and imperfections in the color and/or shape. Stoneware can be cleaned in the dishwasher. But I recommend washing handmade ceramics by hand.
