All stoneware ceramics pieces are unique, made by hand on the potter's wheel from a mix of local Nepalese clay. Any hand-carved details are added before each piece is dried in the sun, glazed and fired at high temperatures in large kilns. To maximise efficiency, not an inch of space is wasted in the kilns, which run for days at a time to maintain the heat. The high firing temperature makes our stoneware ceramics dishwasher and microwave safe, and surprisingly chip resistant. The richly coloured glazes used for stoneware are sourced from North India.
These stoneware ceramic designs are handmade by a large World Fair Trade Organisation certified collective in Kathmandu, Nepal. AURA QUE started working with the group in 2019. The artisans benefit from numerous initiatives, including allowances for family medical care and children's education, and a savings scheme. The organisation is active in reducing its environmental impact and has moved to electric firing for ceramics and away from kerosene-based firing.
