The Naama Collection

Naama (Arabic for ostrich), inspired this collection’s focus on emulating the simple elegance of ostrich eggs. The ostrich egg appeared in ancient Nubian and Egyptian creation myths as a sign of life and rebirth. The ostrich feather was an emblem of the goddess Maat, goddess of truth. During the final judgement, it is said that the heart of the deceased would be weight against an ostrich feather. Being a symbol of resurrection, ostrich eggs were discovered in Nubian and Egyptian tombs as a kind of funerary offering believe to feed the deceased in the afterlife.

The Glaze

The glaze is a matte, opaque white glaze that allows some the white clay’s natural speckling to be revealed.

The piece

The bowl of the planter is formed on the wheel and three drainage holes are carefully added to the bottom. Three round spheres of clay are then added to create the minimalist feet of the planter.

Due to the handmade nature of this piece, expect slight variations.
