Olla Ceramics is a project with the vision to connect clay science and innovation with the technical elements that have been passed down by indigenous potters who paved the way for use of wild clay bodies.
Each piece has a place correlated with it, its home base- and its shape is informed by this connection. 
To find way to push this materials natural beauty, flexibility and molecular strength into being an object not only aesthetic but multi-functional is the ultimate goal.
Above all, clay has heart. Reminding us to see the speciality of the soil that our homes, our history and our current lives are taking place on is the irreplaceable value of this practice, and these forms.
