If we don't have what you need in our stock room, orders can take anywhere from a few weeks up to 2 or 3 months to fulfill
(depending on the size of the order, whether we have to make it from scratch or just glaze our bisque).
Our process takes time!
PLEASE PLAN AHEAD!!!
It's official ...
we have launched our own online store
Come by and take a look
For trade, hospitality or wholesale accounts
please contact us directly
or go to http://www.humbleceramicswholesale.com/
Production time is anywhere between 8 to 12 weeks
(possibly more) depending on the size of the order or if we have to make your items from scratch,
unless you pick from shapes we keep in stock
at the time of the inquiry (bisque only) ...
and all we need to do is glaze to your color preference.
This timing does not include shipping.
Thank you for your patience and understanding ...
and watch Humble Ceramics grow - one piece at a time.
Thank you for being part of this artist' s growing "L.A. story".

It's always an honor to know chefs are inspired by our "clay canvases" ... above is a sneak peak at a menu created by Chef Francis Bassa (previously of Alma in DTLA) for his pop-up dinner on Wednesday January 11, 2017 taking place in a secret location in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles. The actual dinner won't be in our ceramics, but the food will be just as beautiful! For more info, click here https://eatfeastly.com/ or https://www.instagram.com/francis.bassa/

Humble Ceramics is proud to announce the re-launch of the iconic BODHI TREE ... Check-out their stunning new website, artist series, and spiritual objects and books amongst other gems .... Years in the making, this is just the beginning of this fresh, new and beautiful incarnation of the BODHI TREE. Congratulations to the amazing team that made this happen! Now a new generation will experience the magic that was and now is again!
You see the full interview here (scroll down) and https://bodhitree.com/behind-the-scenes-humble-ceramics/
Bodhi Tree: How did you start working with clay as a form of artistic expression?Delphine Lippens: I took a six-week summer course in August 2010 as an opportunity to spend six Saturday mornings with a friend and learn something new. I didn’t really have an interest in clay. This adventure was only supposed to last a few Saturdays. I think “it” (clay) chose me because I didn’t choose “it.”
BT: You’ve said that working with clay lets you feel like you’re interacting with past generations. Can you explain?DL: It’s literally working with the earth, and thinking about the past generations who have come in contact with that clay. I have hundreds, if not thousands, of little moments throughout the week that make me feel this way, such as looking at the clouds and thinking of all the painters who have painted them throughout history, or looking at the moon and thinking I could be anywhere in the space-time continuum. Listening to the wind, closing my eyes and trying to figure out its trajectory by the sounds of leaves vibrating in the trees—this takes me back to childhood and beyond.
BT: How do you incorporate mindfulness in other parts of your life?DL: It’s just about being present in what I do. Being aware, curious, awake, willing to learn, and doing acts with intention. Thinking about the consequence or impact of an action. It’s an internal process, a work in progress.
BT: What do you love about working with clay?DL: When you are working with clay, you are working with earth, water, fire and air, but you are also working with gravity and time! How magical is that?!
BT: You’ve said Humble Ceramics uses complicated steps to achieve a simple aesthetic. Do you apply that concept to your everyday life?DL: As a Gemini, I have two conflicting personalities, so it’s always a challenging act to make sure both sides are satisfied, acknowledged and recognized. It goes back to the circle and the square: both are very different, so how can I make them work together? There is always an inner dialogue going on about a search for peace and harmony.
BT: Tell us about where you get inspiration.DL: I grew up in Belgium, where I was exposed to the work of Axel Vervoordt, Jules Wabbes, Jacques Wirtz, Pierre Culot, Jean-Francois Paquay and many more incredible artists and artisans who were all influenced by the Japanese aesthetic and concept of wabi-sabi. It was the balance of a beautiful architectural space with a beautifully imperfect object that brought so much warmth to a place. Also, the passage of time and wear and tear brought so much soul to the simplest object. It became an exercise of discernment between perfection and imperfection and how they interact with and are essential for one another. It’s about a certain type of harmony that happens between opposites, a bridge of some sort.
BT: Do you find that your work is appreciated more for its aesthetic or function?DL: Both. Not one or the other, rather, one and the other!

Humble Ceramics spotted in Food & Wine Magazine's September issue ... on page 64. We are the small salt cellar (not the large bowl). Thanks!!!
Scrolling down my daily dose of Huff Post, suddenly I see a tiny picture where the plate looks oddly familiar ... I click on the link and here it is, recipes from the wonderful book by Lindsey Love called "Chickpea Flour does it all". We are honored to have our work pictured in the book, and that's how this pic of our stillness plate and the enoki bowl landed on the Huffington Post! Wow! We highly recommend the book as it will be inspiring to everyone (vegans and meat eaters alike - though this book is actually vegetarian). I my humble opinion, one can never have too many cookbooks, especially ones with such beautiful pictures!
