Create the perfect gift

Showing your love and affection with ATMA's ceramics

Customized gifts are the best way to tell your loved ones how much you cherish having them in your life. You have great memories together and you want them to remember those. They can become a new cooking tradition with their own kids or a source of energy when they might feel a bit down. 

I define myself as a nostalgic person, but a happy one! I started writing my grandma’s amazing recipes on mixing bowls and gift them to my brothers and cousins. Their reactions were immediate and unforgettable. Which is why I decided to include customized ceramics in ATMA collection. 

Choose the perfect ceramic

ATMA’s recipe mixing bowl is definitely the centerpiece of my customized  ceramics. However, I have developed a few more items from functional to decorative. I have sorted them by occasion, but the most important is what memory you want to transmit: a family recipe, a song, a poem, a special date, etc. 

For each item listed below, I stipulate the recommended length of the text, as well as its functional or decorative nature.

Material and Timing

In my studio, I use stoneware clay fired at 1250°C / 2280°F. It has an excellent resistance to shocks  and it goes in the microwave and dishwasher.

For the writing, I use the same clay body as the vessel diluted with water. I apply it when the vessel is still fresh so that both merge together when drying and being fired together.  For recipes, I use capital letters for the title and small letters for ingredients and process. For the other writings (song’s lyrics, poems, dates, names, etc) I use only capital letters. The reason behind this choice is only esthetic. So if you want it differently, you can mention it when purchasing the ceramic.

Depending on the time of the year, I might need up until 3 weeks to make the vessel and customize it. Ceramic is a slow art with long drying times and 2 firings, each one lasting about 36 hours to go up to the expected temperature and cool down. We, ceramicists, are all very patients people!

My studio is based in Spain, I send ceramics every week to Europe, US and Canada. The shipping takes about a week for the US and Canada and 3 to 5 days for Europe.

Wedding gifts ideas

Mixing bowl

ATMA’s customized mixing bowl can be offered as a wedding gift as well as for Christmas or any special occasion. Sharing family traditions is that important! 

For wedding gifts, I have been writing ingredients and short process text in front (sometimes there was no process text), and the names and wedding date in the back. For longer recipes, it is better to stay with the original design which is ingredients in the front and process text in the back. 

Mixing Bowl:  25 x 20 cm / 10 x 7.8″ approx – 12 ingredients max – 30 words for the process. recommended

Dip Bowl: 18 x 15 cm / 7 x 6″ approx – 6 ingredients max – 20 words recommended for the process text. 

Functional ceramic – Medium to Long text
