Hello, my name is Sonia and I am the creative imagination behind Smooth Ceramics. I thought it would be nice to give you a little explanation why I am doing this crazy combination of Natural Balms in Ceramics..
A client asked me the other day if I had a chemistry background - dear No! If I can do these balms, so will you! In fact that is the main concept.
What took me to where I am was a combination of circumstances. 1st: perseverance of an old idea; 2nd: raise a child with moderate eczema and other allergies (apparently they go hand-in-hand).
Natural lip balm was not the first natural skincare balm I've adventured to make, was actually an oat & honey bodybalm for my child. Was truly divine! That easily replaced my 'no nasties' body cream and then I found myself researching into this alchemy world of natural skincare to nourish our bodies. It just sounds right.. if we feed our body with nourishing healthy food internally why shouldn't we do the same externally? The benefits are enormous, it's healthier and sure you will know what you are applying to your skin. And suddenly you truly rake ownership of it! I like the sound of it!
Why ceramics? Since many years I had a project in my mind? I had sculptures to do. When arriving to WA Australia I signed up to a pottery night class. I then created my sculpture and a few more after that and then I simply couldn't stop playing with clay.. magic happened in front of my eyes. These nights became my mindful moments! So here I was creating natural balms one day and pottery at night.. I've put the two together and started this very spontaneous project of Smooth Ceramics. And so far, I am loving this journey!! 😄❤
