Zenful Pottery, Perfectly Imperfect

The Work - Minimalism Meets Elegance.

In a society where everything is becoming increasingly fast paced and digital, finding time to slow down is essential. Zenful Pottery is dedicated to bringing you handcrafted functional ceramics, offering you the opportunity to connect with the piece, the maker, and most importantly, the self. 

Believing in the wabi sabi philosophy of things being more authentic in their subtle imperfections, we aim to make work that highlights the innate beauty of the ceramic medium. Following techniques of traditional Japanese ceramics, we aim to make work that is ornate in its simplicity. By keeping it simple, we hope that our work gives you the space to just be, creating moments of mindfulness throughout your day. 

The Artist - Danielle Baghernejad, Techie Turned Ceramicist.

Danielle has always been a maker, but it wasn't until her late 20s that it became her primary focus. Feeling burnout from a corporate tech career, she needed a change, and in 2018 founded Zenful Pottery with the goal of making handmade more affordable, bringing beautiful, functional ceramics to a wider audience.

Ever since that beautiful moment, she's been working to bring ceramics center stage in her life. Having studied Japanese culture her whole life, she dove into the world of Japanese ceramics, learning how to bring traditional techniques into a modern home. Wanting to bring the sense of peace that clay gives her to others, she started Zenful Pottery with the goal of making handmade more accessible, since everyone should be able to experience the joy of a good cup of coffee in a handmade mug.
