They both love pottery. Both have a keen interest in all things handmade. And both have a creative eye for contemporary art. So, this magic was bound to happen. I'm talking about a mother-daughter duo (Anukriti and Anamiki Saraogi) who kickstarted an amazing homegrown brand for ceramic cutlery called Clay And Glaze.
Started in 2016, this brand was started with a mission to promote stoneware and hand-moulded pottery and throw a spotlight on Pondicherry's hidden gems - its talented artisans and craftsmen. When the duo came across the ceramic collection in this southern city, they knew that these deserved more attention and eyeballs. Plus, these were far more superior in terms of quality, compared to the other ceramics available in the market.
And fast-forward to today, these guys have a stunning collection of handmade pottery, have provided a convenient platform for these artisans and are offering over 60 designs of ceramics ranging from cups to mugs and serveware. Their entire collection has three main features: multi-functional, aesthetic and minimal. So, if you're a cutlery hoarder, like my colleague Sreepathy, you've found yourself a wonderland.
Their collection starts from INR 300 and upwards. Whereas, their serveware starts from INR 950 and upwards. And we hear, their South Indian filter coffee dabara set is one of their best-selling product. And yes, they ship Pan-India!
You can place your order by simply WhatsApping them on 9843577296 and 9943577296. And they're soon launching a website too. Woohoo!
