Oema ceramics is one of the first ceramic brands we started working with, and we have a special affection for it!
In addition, its objects are sweet and beautiful, and are perfect to give an elegant and chic touch to your home. We discover its new collection of pieces in which Ana, her creator, has worked, using more colorful ink and pastels, the result could not be more beautiful. We also tell you a little about the history of the brand, taking advantage of the occasion.
Look for its pieces in our fine arts section, don't miss them!
THE HISTORY OF WHAT
"Oema is a small-batch ceramics brand that creates artisanal pieces to be treasured and part of the everyday rituals in a joyful home.
Inspired by the curiosity about what makes us feel at home. Imagining it is based on the visual and emotional details of our surroundings and believing in the thought that the environment directly affects our lives and influences our sensory, creative, motivational and well-being pre-dispositions.
Oema relate to people who see beauty in details and value the importance of knowing the history of what surrounds them, recognizing the practical and aesthetic values of what they carefully choose to be part of their routines.
Each piece is modeled, finished and glazed individually and fired at high temperature. Resulting in unique limited ceramics that vary in dimension and finish and are intended to elevate the joy of the daily habits for many years to come.
There will never be two pieces exactly like each other.
Ana Luiza de Souza Cruz is a Brazilian designer and ceramicist based in Barcelona and who designs and produces each piece.
Having lived in different houses, cities, countries and continents, Ana is inspired by what makes individuals feel comfortable and belonging to their homes, connecting with the piece of ground that guides them emotionally.
Ana finds in handcrafted ceramics a way to identify with people through the belief that the care for the home is a grounding form of self-care. Exploring her grandfather and great-grandfather's craft with a delicate combination of contemporary references and sentimental touch.
Oema is the word found matching letters coming from the sentence “Mario oleiro” in Portuguese, “potter Mario” in English. Mario was Ana’s grandfather and a very skilled potter."
