Cerâmica feita à mão

Handmade ceramics

Oito.Atelier makes most of its ceramics using the potter's wheel.

The process is time consuming, delicate, but very beautiful, each imperfection is what makes each piece special.

The potter takes a piece of clay and places it on top of the wheel, pulling the clay and molding it to obtain the desired pattern. The execution time of each piece depends a lot on several factors, like the size of the piece, the model, if it has some type of finish, or if it even has wings; but on average the potter takes about 3 minutes to make each piece.

Once ready, it must dry, using an oven, and then it must be cooked in a gas oven at about 1200 degrees celsius; it is ready to be painted and after drying and packaging it goes to your homes.
