Working at the studio with Kultela clay is "slow design," and big pottery kiln is only fired a few times per season. It also takes much more time and patient when working with wild clay. We will inform you when flowerpots are ready, so remember to be patient.
We will not be responsible for any unclaimed pottery after two months of the date of when they are ready, and you have been informed.
Thank You and Welcome to UDUMBARA!
