Our ceramics have been hand-sculpted from the finest Spanish clays and fired in a kiln two or three times epending on the glaze effect we had in mind for each piece.
After the firings, they all have been properly tested to ensure their absolute durability and safety.
All the glazes that we use are lead-free, do not contain any other harmful or unstable components and are absolutely safe when they come in contact with food or drink.
Every ceramic piece has a story to tell. They share some bits of their story with us as we create them, but not all of it: they keep their secrets so that later they can share them with you.
Devil’s Trap Plate
The main purpose of the Devil’s Trap Plate is to protect you and your loved ones from the evil that lurks in the shadows, day and night. You never know where the enemy might come from, and you can never be too careful. What if a newbie demon decides to practice possession on your favourite sandwich? Surely it can’t be good for your digestion!
Well, with the Devil’s Trap Plate you don’t have to be afraid anymore: now you can check if your snack is free of any demon substance before eating it! Simply flip over* the Devil’s Trap Plate containing your snack. If the snack falls off the plate, you can eat it safely. But please don’t panic if your snack stays on the plate! We’ve got you covered: take out the little scroll that comes with every Devil’s Trap Plate, and read the exorcism printed on the scroll for your convenience. And don’t worry if your Latin reading skills are not exactly up to standards: the demons in training are rather weak and can be easily exorcised on your first try!
*just don’t try it with a jam toast. Tests have shown that the demons tend to avoid toast, so if you flip your Devil’s Trap Plate with a jam toast on it, it will result in nothing but a messy kitchen and a perfectly good jam toast gone to waste.
Angelbut Candle Lanterns
this choir of angels is uncharacteristically quiet even the one with the trumpet does nothing but smile as their heart glows with coppery gold over the cobalt blue mould of the wings rustling and whispering softly that every last one of these angelbuts sings in your mind in your soul as long as you listen as long as you light up a candle a pinprick of hope in the dark and the cold of this tedious winter that just might be getting a little too old thus making it all the more precious to hold one of them in your hands as long as it stands to a reason to pull yourself through what they’re calling a ‘holiday season’ believing it’s gonna be worth it when push comes to shove–
and yes, yes it will be. the one thing that matters. the thing that the life and the dreams are made of.
Halloween ceramic pumpkin lanterns
We’re not gonna wax too much poetics about the pieces in this listing. Ceramic pumpkinheads – what could possibly be better? With our charmingly grinning jack-o-lanterns you can have Halloween all year round! They will cast grotesque shadows on your walls and ceiling, ward off the evil spirits and befriend the benevolent ones, so that they can join forces and sing you the spookiest lullabies, bringing you the best Halloween dreams filled with glowing bonfires, autumn leaves, pumpkins and the best of tricks!
Their names are (as per the second picture, left to right): Pumpkin Pumpkin, Snarpkin, Steampumpkin and Meowmpkin. Steampumpkin is already spoken for, but the rest of them are looking forward to finding their homes and their favourite humans. Please specify which pumpkinhead you’d like to purchase with your order.
Vincent the painted ceramic plate
Vincent the plate was inspired by Vincent the painter - or was it the other way round? We can’t really say, for there’s a bit more to thyme than a strict progression from cause to effect, and we’re sure you all know how that quote ends, so… Let’s just agree on one thing: although nothing is certain, there’s a high probability that the two Vincents are somehow related. Should you get curious enough to try and discover the nature of this relation, we suggest that you start by purchasing Vincent the plate. He is one of a kind, and you won’t find another one like him in the entire multiverse.
Poppy flower cup
Poppy is the first of the flower cups that we have created. She is bright and chipper and quite a popular girl – she will bring sunshine and happy thoughts to your kitchen with her, so even when you feel like having a cuppa all by yourself, you will still have pleasant and undemanding company. Poppy likes doing things with style and prefers green and herbal teas, as they bring out her best features (however, she won’t say no to coffee or any other beverage of your choice). She has also done her fair share of modeling (and she is a professional – it is obvious from the pictures above) and would casually strike a perfect pose sitting on your shelf – her best angle is every angle.
Each Poppy cup is exactly like the flower she represents: she is unique, and even though two of them standing side by side might seem alike, if you look closer you will notice that they are completely different.
Somewhere in the deepest, brightest and most wonderfully bizarre corner of the space-time continuum there’s a tiny asteroid revolving around the smallest of the stars. This star doesn’t fit into any standard categories, and should the scientists of any inhabited world encounter it, they would probably have spent the rest of their lives arguing over its classification. But the star doesn’t care about that; it simply shines all the colours of the space rainbow around, giving its light – and its love – to a lump of rock that it managed to pull inside its gravitational field. This rock can hardly be called a planet (it is, after all, smaller than Pluto), but it has given birth to the rarest species in the multiverse – the SpACE Flower.
These beautiful flowers have absorbed all the colours of space and blended them within their petals in such a way that by the most logical coincidence represents the colours of the asexual pride flag: we put the ACE in space after all!
The SpACE Flower family consists of a SpACE Flower Cup, SpACE Flower Bowl and SpACE Flower Bud, also known as the Tiny Cup. They have all been carefully sculpted by hand from the finest Spanish clay and fired in a kiln three times to achieve the perfect space glaze effect on their petals. After the firings they have been properly tested to ensure their absolute durability and safety, and we can confidently say that they are all ready to embrACE your favourite foods or beverages.
Rainbow Pride Flower
Rainbow Pride Flower is yet another species that can be found on the tiny asteroid lost among the stars, the home planet to SpACE Flower. Its petals shimmer in the solar wind, shining brighter than the stars around it, reflecting all the colours of the space rainbow in perfect harmony. It grows stronger with every passing moment, reaching towards the stars, standing tall and proud, singing of joy and happiness and love and love and love. Its song, of course, cannot be perceived by the human ear, but should we be able to translate it into perceptible wavelengths it would have been the most beautiful music you’ve ever listened to. Sometimes, if you put a Rainbow Pride Flower cup to your ear, like you would a seashell, you can hear distant echoes and whispers of that music.
Billy Sparrow might seem a little bit grumpy about… well, everything, really. He’s frowning into the distance, gaze just as sharp and stern as the shape of his beak. His feet are firmly planted onto the tree branch, and his whole body language makes it clear that he is absolutely resolute in his statement.
However, Billy’s agenda is a lot more complex than you might think. He uses this short yet meaningful verbal expression to declare his stand against existential crises, currency fluctuations, and the abyss that is quite capable of devouring unsuspected humans whole and for good. Billy doesn’t ever let anything get him down. He is always there, protecting your wellbeing and your sandwiches (and he will never stoop to eating a sandwich that isn’t his). Whatever nasty thing the enemy might bring your way, Billy’s answer is and always will be “No.”
Carl and Nate: rainbow cthulhu twins
Carl and Nate have apparently arrived here from another world. Taking a genuine interest in humanity and its food consumption culture, they decided to stay for a while, so that they could conduct an in-depth research of this astounding phenomenon, previously unbeknown to them. In order to do so in the best way possible, they decided to take a shape of two medium ice cream dishes. “For science, Carl!” Nate cried out as he stepped inside the converting/transmitting machine, disappearing from his home world and reappearing on my workbench as a perfectly ordinary lump of Spanish white clay a few brief moments later.
Carl and Nate were hand-sculpted and have undergone three firings in a kiln. A fine coat of transparent glaze was applied to them after the circular rainbow drawings inside and the weird otherworldly shapes and Cthulhu tentacles outside were done. Later, a number of tests were performed on them both in order to ensure their durability and readiness to contain foodstuffs, be they hot, cold, liquid, solid or any possible combination of those.
Despite the fact that their primary function is to be used as ice cream bowls, tests have proved them to be perfectly suitable to hold various alcoholic beverages, for they are capable of producing ear-pleasing chiming sounds whenever they touch upon one another. It is quite possible that said chiming serves them as a means of communication, thus enabling them to share their experiences of the human world.
Roger never liked waking up. He knew that as soon as he opened his eyes, the wonderful dream about him being a little black cat named Polly would turn out to be just that: a mere dream, nothing real.
Roger never liked orange juice, for he didn’t believe this beverage to be particularly amiable or in any way pleasant company. He got extremely irritated every time the lumps of pulp slowly sank to the bottom, covering his eyes. With the orange juice one could neither sleep nor be properly awake, not to mention balancing on the thin line between the dream and reality, and that was what Roger loved most.
Roger loved thyme lime green tea. Add half a teaspoon of honey, stir twice clockwise and then three times counter-clockwise, and you will find the wobbly line everywhere around you, and there will be no difference between the dream and another dream, the one that we sometimes mistake for the reality it isn’t.
Roger knew: he needed coffee to be able to open his eyes.
This is Thoughtful Thomas
Thomas is an angelbut.
Like all angels, Thomas is genderless (though they do have a very cute butt) and has a nice pair of wings. Angelbuts don’t need their wings to resemble bird’s in order to be able to fly; however, they do find the concept of wings rather appealing and shape them according to current weather or what they had for breakfast.
Thomas is not particularly advanced in social interactions, but has proven to be a good company if you are a kind of person to enjoy sitting in companionable silence, contemplating world domination. Or eggs. Thomas really doesn’t have a preferred subject, being a philosopher and all.
This is Bob. Bob is a lantern that’s shaped like a house. Or a house that’s shaped like a lantern? Either way Bob is very cute and very curious by nature, so it’s very difficult for them to stay in one place for too long, and that makes Bob the best travel companion for someone who travels a lot but still needs something they can call a home.
Bob’s current travel companion tells us that they are very good at being a home.
