"Their work is a love letter to their heritage, with an added bonus of being able to share it with others."- City Scout Magazine

 

Hi-we're Echeri Ceramics, a husband and wife duo that combine contemporary design with a traditional medium using our experiences as a an influence. Each piece is handmade on the potter's wheel made with food safe glazes in-house with intention to be part of your everyday routines for a long long time.

Note from the Aritsts

We want to create beautiful contemporary Mexican ceramics that speaks to our experiences, outlook, and lifestyle. We’re driven every day by creating a lifestyle  that is unique to us, as well as the passion behind learning and creating something that is functional and has our unique voice.  We want to create an experience that echoes our values, traditions, as well as appreciation for slow living, and quality over quantity.
