Having worked in the environmental sector for over 16 years, Elaine ensures that her studio and practice are as sustainable and environmentally responsible as possible.

The energy used to power the studio and kiln are from 100% renewable sources, and all packaging materials are either reused or recycled, which is why you may find that your lovely new Terra Mare Ceramics fruit bowl arrives disguised in a Virgin Wines box!

The Studio has a zero waste policy with all scrap clay and pots that didn’t make it to the kiln being recycled and made into new ceramics, and those that have slight glaze imperfections sold as ‘seconds’.
