  • SLOWLY, PERSONALLY AND INDIVIDUALLY


    Ceramics is a slow pace craft and it all relies on time. Each piece is carefully and individually handcrafted from start to finish and takes a few weeks to be made. The clay is shaped and finished by hands using the potter’s wheel, water and a few tools. It then goes through two firings, ending with food-safe functional pieces.

  • MADE TO LAST


    Ana works with high quality clay fired at high temperature that is food-safe, and uses microwave and dishwasher-safe glazes. This way, Oema’s creations are made to last for many years. Each piece is created to be treasured and used everyday for a long period of time requiring very simple care.

  • AN ODE TO EVERYDAY RITUALS


    Oema is inspired by the curiosity about what makes us feel at home. Relating to people who see beauty in details and value the importance of knowing the history of what surrounds them, recognizing the practical and aesthetic values of what was carefully chosen to be part of their routines.
