Ceramics to love
Winterwares is a range of kiln fired porcelain & stoneware ceramic homewares designed and created in Fremantle, Western Australia by designer Simone Nabholz.
The name of her business derives from family ties. ‘Winter’ is her mothers maiden name and was her grandmother’s married name. They both hold a special place in Simone’s heart and she often thinks about them when she’s creating her work in her studio.
Hand made ceramics is a huge weakness of mine, I’m a big collector and each piece is so special to me. When I came across this range from Simone, I thought I had hit the jackpot, don’t you agree?
Winterwares was born from Simone’s desire to embrace a “slower pace in life and savour the everyday moments that bring us joy”… I think we all need to take a leaf out of Simone’s book from time to time.
She believes there is beauty to be found in our ordinary days. The simple things, like drinking a cup of tea in solitude or a simple gathering around our tables to share comfort food with friends.
Looking at her intricate pieces, you can see the celebration of such small special moments, taking time to slow down and enjoy the little details in our day which we sometimes take for granted.
Simone creates her magnificent pieces the handcrafted, slow way with her own hands. The slow and deviated process of creating each piece is just incredible…..what patience she has. I love the soft muted palette of the range as well….nothing that will date too soon! Being a potter myself, I can fully appreciate how hard it is to make something this beautiful, let me tell you my creations never look like this!
Bespoke is a favourite word of mine….every piece from the range is unique, featuring different curves and characteristics from the making and firing process. How magnificent is this bowl below, it honestly took my breath away when I saw it!
He range comprises of dinnerware, flower vessels and coffee cups….I seriously want one of everything!
Simone has a special offer for all of you too!
