By Joost homewares

Earthy, natural and unique, By Joost’s range of homewares have an authenticity that is honest and attractive.

Maintaining By Joost’s design/manufacture philosophy, this homeware range pays homage to the environment it is created from and to which it must, eventually return. Using raw terra cotta sourced in Australia highlights the objects’ connections to the earth, and collaboration with local artisans results in individually crafted bespoke pottery. 

From their organic origins the Joost ceramics will gain character as they age, developing new colours and textures, and at the end of their lives they are simply broken down and returned to the earth.

In the words of Joost Bakker himself, “I want to bring our food back to the start. The pot acts as a reminder that this food has been harvested, planted, grown.”
