Unique Pieces Made For Keeping

Behind The Name

My Palinopsia

Palinopsia is a rare state where you keep seeing an object, long after you’ve stopped looking at it. It’s about lasting impressions, and so are we. Pushing back on disposability culture, we make for keeps and bang the no-ho-hum drum. Our handmade ceramics have stories baked into them, each a one-and-only, with the swagger of signature style. We subscribe to the chaos of variety and celebrate difference because that’s where life lives. Style minimalists, we’re maxed out in personality. Plate up on a ceramic canvas and let your food write the rest. 

Made For Keeps

"My ceramic devotion didn’t come out of the blue. I formerly trained in fashion and textile design, after graduating I hopped around multiple industries to finesse my design and development skills, before I settled on clay.

Something about clay and the mineral-wizardry behind firing a glaze always intrigued me. And there’s something cool about the plates on your table coming from the earth beneath the feet of the artists who made them. About wondering what that earth’s seen, who’s trodden upon it, and how it’s ended up on your table. Time is written in mud, at least I think so.

After 17 years developing products for big box retailers, with no genuine connection between the maker and the consumer, I became acutely aware of the disconnection we have to the people and processes behind the products in our shopping carts.

I had a hunger to build a business that prioritises creativity, connection and community, this is a true reflection of my values in everything that I do. I wanted to work with a product where every piece is a one-of-a-kind find, it needed to be kind to the environment, and I didn't want my packaging to become my customers problem at disposal. We make for keeps while taking a planet perspective.

I'm excited about Palinopsia's future and I'm grateful for everyone that has supported us along the way. Thank you for inviting us to your dining room table, to play a part in your meal-time rituals, what an honour."
