Meet The Artisan
Husband and wife, Maricel & Maria Mocanu, are the only potters left in the south-east Moldova region. The clay pots that form in Maricel’s hands are made using traditional techniques passed down for generations. The clay used, collected from the nearby Siret river, is kneaded and kneaded to remove all impurities. Each piece is moulded in their home atelier, then skilfully hand-painted with a modern design. No two pieces are exactly the same, each one telling the story of its journey from the river bed, through Maricel & Maria's skilful hands, to your table.
We do everything possible to ensure that your items will arrive on time and undamaged. As with all handmade crafts, no two pieces are the same, and, as a result, some minor differences may exist from piece-to-piece. Each pattern is totally individual, and colours will vary depending on the piece selected.
