Our Design Philosophy
“TRUE PERFECTION IS IMPERFECT”....
inspires our design philosophy
...Veracity shapes our rustic pronouncement!
We celebrate shades of life and how it's ever transforming. We craft stories around all moods and their coexistence - vibrance & calmness, drama & subtlety, quirk & elegance, movement & static...
Vicinity stimulates our conception, we love to tell many stories... be it peppy minimalism or classic refinement; opulent abundance or monochromatic poise, all at once. Our expression is spirited, vivacious and lavish. We like to be literal and symbolic at the same time. Our design is dynamic like all of us and our universe.
We relish esthetical harmony and pursue inspirational functionality!
Swaa Clay Studio was started by Swapnil Pandeya in 2017. We design and handcraft ceramic tableware & home decor.
At Swaa we let every pot be itself. We prefer making 'similar' over 'identical'. Every article is handcrafted one at a time and enjoys maker's undivided attention. Each one is equally special and experiences a personal journey from clay to kiln and finally to your beautiful home!
Amidst today’s fast fashion and disposable ways, we believe in creating products that are designed to last. We aspire to contribute towards a sustainable and futuristic lifestyle.
“To buy what we need & cherish & treasure...”
We like to make sure that all our raw material is recycled within the studio, not contributing to unnecessary debris.
