Iveta Goddard Ceramics

Iveta studied ceramics in the Czech Republic before working for a TV Film/Cartoon Studio but her dream was always to have her own studio which she established in 2004.

Her contemporary unique pieces sell in Japan, Australia, USA and the UK.

Iveta's pottery is made in white earthenware or stoneware, using the natural texture of clay with minimal use of coloured glazes. Creating something that someone will appreciate is what really motivates her. The designs are achieved using techniques such as engraving, carving and stamping minimalistic decoration then finished with oxides and colourful glazes. Finally they are fired in an kiln to 1020°C or 1240°C.

Iveta enjoys the whole process of creating something from an idea which can come from anywhere at any time. The shape of the clocks came from an interesting stone seen in an ornamental garden

Iveta's recent work has a rustic charm and blurs the line between being pretty and practical.
