This beautiful scallop shell shaped bowl is made with a speckled stoneware clay, high in iron oxide, which bursts through the salt white glaze when fired, producing natural dark flecks through the glaze.
Glazed on the interior only, exterior is the deliciously warm and textural raw clay body.
~ For the ocean lovers, sunbathers, wave riders, vitamin sea takers, salt and sun babes - this bowl is for you ~
This piece is hand-built and fired in studio at Kami & Kindred.
ABOUT KAMI AND KINDRED
Kami & Kindred is all about natural beauty. A carefully crafted collection of handmade, ceramic and natural fibre jewellery and homewares celebrating the goddess within, and everyday essential rituals.
Each item is handcrafted by Hayley ( the owner ), in every sense of the word. The process includes sourcing local natural materials, working the clay, wheel throwing the domestic ware, mixing and applying specialty glazes and even producing the twisted fibre cords and tassels used for jewellery pieces. No amount of effort or love is spared.
The ceramic jewellery pieces are shaped by hand from stoneware clay's that have been mixed with a touch of energized sand from our stunning beaches here in Nelson, Aotearoa (New Zealand). Each piece then goes through two firings; a bisque and a glaze fire - this is what makes them super strong.
The cord that ties the necklaces is also made by hand using only the finest quality cotton and silk yarns from Japan.
'Kami', a Japanese word that translates to ‘the divinity in all things’, and ‘Kindred’ celebrating sisterhood, is a powerful and fitting name for this high-end, sustainable, feminine design label.
Kami & Kindred is not just another designer brand, but an ethical, slow-fashion company, proud to be part of a global movement towards self love and empowerment.
Their goal is to contribute to a more sustainable, creative and beautiful world by embracing key concepts of Japanese aesthetics and also the principle of slow fashion.
