Collection: Soleil ceramics

Each piece of pottery we carry is individually handmade. This means that there are never two pieces exactly the same; there will always be minor variations that show the hand of the artist. The minor differences from item to item are the reason we buy handmade ceramics – if we wanted everything to be identical, there’s a whole world of assembly-line products out there. The little idiosyncrasies you see – like fingerprints, small flecks of paint, slight smudges or loose-fitting lids – only add to the value and beauty of the piece.  Hand painted pottery will always show evidence of hand-craftsmanship, and that’s part of what makes it unique and special.
