By combining the 4 elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water we produce a large range of water systems and functional pottery. Used since the late Stone Age, pottery has proven to be an ideal material for cooking and storing which does not leave unwanted chemicals or metals in the food. We believe stoneware is the perfect non-toxic material for filtering and storing your drinking water.
