Joanna started Holistic ceramics in 2018. She found herself wanting to practice rituals that would connect more with her spirituality, and thought of creating objects that would help for this purpose.
Joanna says she is highly inspired by everything connected to the senses and wanted her ceramics to reflect that. Combining spiritual and protection symbols, crystals and tarot is really what gives a strong identity to Holistic ceramics.
When Joanna makes ceramics, she thinks of what simple objects would help people who are familiar and unfamiliar with spiritual practices. If it can become their sacred tools, bring them happiness, calm and help them in their spiritual journey, Joanna says she has then achieved her highest goal!
Joanna’s Mother’s Day pick’s:
One of my latest ceramics, the Coeur ring trinket dish. They are the perfect place to put your rings. As a woman and a mum, there are always times when I'm rushing with my baby. Having the Coeur Trinket Dish, I can store my jewels all in one place, for quick & easy access on the go. Also, this ceramic has special loving energy so all my precious belongings recharge with love.
Another ceramic I would love to give to Mum is the Sacred Moon Incense Holder. The moon represents feminine energies, intuition, calmness and cycles. The gold adds something very magical. And it's all about taking, even a few minutes, to light up an incense stick and enjoy a time for you and your space.
