Handmade clay dessert plates by Aratta Ceramics. From Armenia, with love.
Painter and illustrator Vazgen Gevorgyan decided to start his own creative business after realizing his wage as a university instructor was not going to cut it. He and his five- member team--including his wife, Satenik--run Aratta Ceramics out of a series of repurposed structures in Gyumri and source all of their clay from the nearby village of Talin.
Each of our dessert plates was formed by hand, baked and hand- embellished with a mouflon goat and script homage to the cuneiform and symbols of the ancient Armenian kingdom of Urartu.
