Mecki makes modern ceramics that are good on the eye and designed for everyday use. She uses glazes that reflect her love of nature - Mecki grew up surrounded by mountains and meadows and now lives by the sea. She loves the unique form and feel of handmade ceramics, the peculiarities and details that set them apart from mass-produced ware.
Zanna is an illustrator using hand-drawn techniques. Her style is characterised by a delicacy of touch, subtle use of colour with a balance of composition and depth of texture. Like Mecki, Zanna is drawn to capture the natural world in her work.
With a little kiln magic as the secret ingredient and their respective strengths freely added to the mix, the team produce small series of illustrated ceramics - many with flora and fauna as their themes. They love pottery to be touched and enjoyed, pots that offer a safe little space in our busy lives - from the first pick-me-up in the morning to the last drink before sleep.
