Meet Isa and Jerome, the powerhouse behind Hartmud Studio.  Absolutely passionate about what they do, it was a privilege to head out to their studio to see and hear about their unique brand!  Namely, a brand dedicated to creating handmade stoneware ceramics.

About Hartmud Handmade Stoneware Ceramics

I received a history lesson whilst visiting!  Once again, I was confronted with the sad truth of how so many artisans are abandoning their trades and are no longer passing down the skills through the generations as a result of our throw-away societies; we no longer value craftsmanship and quality!

This is, however, a tale of a small revolution that has begun.  A tale of a movement beginning in Scandinavia, Japan, and England and spreading across the globe, movements rebelling or rather defending against the throwaway mentality, materialism and industry production so prevalent in our society today.

Jerome and Isa are very much inspired by such movements and are not interested in mass production, seeking rather to create things of beauty, handcrafted and unique.  Ultimately allowing them to pay homage to all those artisans that have gone before them and being the change they want to see! You need only spend a few minutes with the pair to realise just how passionate and dedicated they are.  Undoubtedly, they combine beautiful design with a lot of blood, sweat and plenty of elbow grease.  Ask Jerome how many pieces he makes in a day?  And he will tell you ‘until his hands can no longer take it’!

For a first-hand account of finding out what it takes to create one of their beautiful pieces and the chance to make your own (believe me, it’s way way more difficult than it looks), join Isa at one of her pottery workshops at their studio – check their website to find out more.
