The beauty of craftmanship

The steps that make each of my products unique

  1. 1

    The clay gets wedged several times to ensure a uniform consistency and remove air pockets on the inside as well.

  2. 2

    Throwing and refining process. The clay balls get shaped on a potter's wheel and rest for 2/3 days. Then they get refined and left to dry for 7/12 days.

  3. 3

    The ceramics are fired at 970° in their first dry stage, using the so called "bisque firing". Then, they rest and cool down in a turned off, closed oven.

  4. 4

    The products, on their last creation stage, are coated with food-safe waterproof glazes; and then fired for a second time at 1250°.

Who am I

Hi, my name is Alessia and this is my story with pottery. It all began by chance, in a moment of my life when I felt lost. At that time I was looking for something that could teach me how to change my pragmatic approach when confronted with my own thoughts or the obstacles life put me through. It was really delirious at the time: every day there were tens of things to do and think about, and, consequently, I reached a break point. That was the time I decided to slow down.

I wanted to do something just for me, to create from scratch - hoping one day I could reach the point when I could say "This is mine. I was able to do it after all". For this reason, I created Materica.
