Every pair of ceramic earrings that come from my kiln has been handmade and uniquely crafted for a bespoke look. Featuring modern geometric designs, these wearable pieces of modern art are shaped from 100% South African porcelain. I cut, shape and design each pair from wet stoneware clay, and then fire it at 1000°C.

Once it comes out of the oven, the earrings are sanded individually and hand-painted with underglazes, oxides and two-carat gold lustre, fired three times throughout the course of creation. This results in smooth, matte porcelain earrings with a shiny gold glaze, which is affixed to a sterling silver post for secure and sterile wear.

The limited-edition Raw ceramic earring range was inspired by the rich hues of southern Africa’s desert landscapes – the bone-dry earth of Sossusvlei, the rock boulders of Namibia and the stark plains of the Kalahari.

The singular beauty of these arid landscapes speak of uncompromising longevity, inspiring creative expression that goes beyond an obvious notion of prettiness to arrive at something mesmerising and eternal.
