I am Belen Berganza, ceramic artist based in Fremantle, Western Australia. I create unique, contemporary, sustainable handmade ceramics using porcelain and earthenware. I want to offer products that are not disposable, have a timelessness and are worthy of being passed on through the generations.
Each design starts with a master piece that I hand carve with very small tools that I make.
Then a mould is produced, the porcelain clay is hand pressed, the edges softened before being glazed and then fired. Once the ceramic jewellery comes out of the kiln it is then set in sterling silver, which frames each individual piece of jewellery art.
