About

Craft has been at the heart of egg since opening its doors almost 30 years ago – a place to find simple objects that invite exploration and touch.

Our relationship with
handmade pots is quite
opposite to that which we
have with mass produced
objects.
The scratches, the stains and
even repairs give character to
the pots.
The more you use your pot,
the more peaceful the texture
/ character becomes.

In Japan, using handmade pots
is considered an activity of
‘nurturing’ the pot, this
reflects the circularity of
traditional Japanese making.

The idea is that we are
transient ‘caretakers’ rather
than the owner of the pot.
pots are made of earth and
return to earth.

The joy of hand made pots is
that the more you use them, the
more characterful they
become. You become a part of the
maturing process of the pot.

“I drink my wine from a
ceramic cup.”
