The Art of Ceramics and Water

The Art of Ceramics and Water

We believe that objects should be imbued with a certain poetry.  In our eyes, nothing is more poetic than the relationship between one of the oldest art forms in the world and our most vital resource - water. The merging of pottery and water is a tale as old as time, and one we can't wait to explore with you. 

The Origins of Pottery & Water 

Stoneware vessels have long since held a place in human existence, with pottery being one of the oldest human inventions. The birth of this widespread art form saw an entwining of the relationship between ceramics and its liquid counterpart, water. 

Since their inception, clay-based ceramics became popular as containers for water and food, art objects, tiles and bricks. From ancient civilisations to the modern world, ceramics have developed over time, but are still being harnessed to store, purify and enhance supplies - including water. 

Modern Adaptions 

The advent of ceramic water filters marked a turning point, where pottery was utilised to embrace the benefits of more modern technology. In 1827 Henry Doulton invented the original ceramic filter candle, an invention which is still recognised as leading technology in filtration methods today. The Doulton Super Sterasyl Ceramic Candle is one of the main water filter options we provide for treating contaminated water supplies. 

Benchtop Ceramic Water Filters 

Blending artistry with utility, our benchtop ceramic water filters are an essential in the modern kitchen. With highly efficient filtration technology, benchtop water filters are designed to elevate your water by removing impurities such as heavy metals and fluoride and retaining essential minerals like calcium and magnesium, ensuring every sip is a nourishing experience.

An opportunity to reconnect with an ancient art form, our ceramic water filters take inspiration from traditional pottery techniques, modernised with thoughtful glazes that are intended to dance the line of utility and sculpture.
