Hand-made bespoke Pottery and Ceramics

creating my own glazes from rocks, to imprinting palm fronds onto my pieces

I find my inspiration in the

beauty of nature

I am not your ‘typical potter’, I spent most of my life experimenting in various art forms: painting, poetry, gypsum sculpture, and even martial arts; but none of these seemed to fill the void in my heart, I wondered if I would ever find my artistic language. Then, in a small fair in Abu Dhabi, I met a Malaysian man who invited me on the potter's wheel. In that moment,

I knew that this was what I had always been looking for, my whole life. That was where my love affair with clay began and it has been a beautiful adventure ever since.

What our

clients say

  • Homa is a magician ! She fixed a very intricate and delicate statue that was gifted to me by my father. The piece had a lot of sentimental value and I was devastated when it broke after my son kicked a football and caused it to fall and break. Homa said she would try her best to put it back together but her work was beyond my expectation .... so neat and tidy. I cannot thank her enough!!!
