All of the ceramics are wheel thrown or hand-built with hand painted illustrations. Every piece is a bit different as a way of a small hand made production. In addition, all the women's illustrations on top of the ceramics are a bit different in each one which promising that the piece that you will receive is one of a kind!
The hand made prints made with block printing technique, which is a process of carving the negative and stamping with specials inks for etch purpose. The digital prints are printed on a great quality papers that picked carfully by me.
