Hand painted conical shape bud vase
A different shape small vase, beautifully hand painted with playful and bold floral patterns.
They are hand built pieces using a slab building technique. The clay used in this pieces is a toasted clay body lightly speckled fired to 1220 degrees.
As my pieces are 100 % handmade. They may show beautiful imperfections that only a handmade product can achieve. I enjoy the slab building process and create pieces following the Japanese philosophy Wabi -sabi. The characteristic of the Wabi-sabi include asymmetry, simplicity and sometimes roughness depending on the claybody I use. There is a natural appreciation of natural objects and processes.

Sustainability: Alma Terra products are ethically made by me in my backyard studio, I care about the environment and the footprint on earth, I only use Australian raw materials and products instead of flying them form different parts of the world, I support Australian businesses only. I recycle and reuse water from the studio to water the veggie garden right outside my creative space. Every left over of clay is recycled until I collect a sufficient amount to make more ceramic pieces. The kiln is run on solar power to fire my work so I minimise the demand from electricity.
I use new and repurposed cardboard boxes and recyclable and biodegradable packing materials only.
Alma Terra ceramics are produced with passion in North East Victoria in the beautiful Ovens Valley.
