In the Making
.
Inspired by her travels, Kaitlin works with a small boutique stoneware production house in Bali to bring her exclusive ceramic collections to life.
Each piece is hand sampled by Kaitlin before being expertly crafted by the studios artisans in limited edition runs.
.
The region by which the ceramic studio is located is known for producing the finest ceramics for premium home and kitchenware brands around the world. Fertile lands in the surrounding areas, combined with generations of experience, makes for a beautiful synergy between aesthetics and durability.
.
The clay body is made in house and all Koa products are finished with beautiful glazes developed by Sydney based technicians. All products are then fired to a temperature of 1250C for nine hours. Built to last a lifetime Kaitlin works with the studio artisans to produce quality items over quantity.
.
Koa’s collection of ceramic candles are hand poured in Kaitlin’s Mornington Peninsula studio and are designed so you can re-use the ceramic piece long after the candle is burned out. Made from 100% natural soy wax sourced from Western Australia, Koa candles are toxin free and reusable.
