after 15 years and two children later, deborah took a short sabbatical to spend some time with her youngest before he started school. it was during this time that she discovered ceramics. a new passion. with romeo about to start school deborah then decided to combine all her passions - her love of fashion, ceramics and all things vintage with the launch of a new website.
deborah's collections have always been made locally. there has always been a focus on quality materials and workmanship. buying less and buying well and using natural fibres, new zealand clay.
