This is a line in an email that I received from one of my customers.
She had asked me to make her a bowl in a certain shape and color; of course I agreed. There was an enjoyable correspondence between us and after she placed her order she wrote the words quoted above.
It is very flattering to me that customers love me because I love them and that my love for every ceramic item that I make shines through.
So, for those who are new to my shop and do not yet know me, my name is Gittit (Gigi). I am the mother of a delightful one and a half year old girl. We live in a small apartment in Tel Aviv, where my beloved little studio is located. Oh – and of course - I am mad about pottery.
I have a successful shop on Etsy and if you're still thinking about buying handmade ceramics from me, take a look at some great 5 star reviews that I’ve received from my customers.

"Lovely color and form. The potter is a dream to work with."
"This is a beautiful dessert plate that is very high quality. I love the rustic color!"
"Second purchase from this shop. This was a gift for my person because he likes to have his coffee from his thermos and I thought we could upscale the plastic lid he usually drinks from. To my great pleasure, he loved it so much he took one of them to work and kept one at home. They are a great size for small pours of coffee and match the larger ~16oz mugs (seen in the photo) we bought previously. Absolutely love the detail. Worth the wait (since we’re in the US)."
"These are beautiful! Superbly made and well worth the money! I can't wait for my husband to unwrap these on Christmas morning."
"The plates are excellent. They are a nice large size and a decent weight. Gigi is an extremely good creative potter, everything she makes has her special touch. I am proud to serve dinner on these plates!"
"Exactly as described! Arrived on time. Even better in person!"
"OMGosh!! I couldn't love this custom bowl more!! I asked for a hand thrown bowl to hold a commercial hummus container- and Gigi made me the perfect bowl! The size is just perfect!! I got to choose my color/finish and I am so happy with how it turned out! Just beautiful!! The turnaround time was reasonable and it arrived well packaged and perfectly intact (shipping pottery from around the world is not easy)!! This will be a much used and cherished piece in our home. The whole family loves it!! Thank you so much!"
"Beautiful - the mug is excellent quality and perfect for my morning coffee! Thank you so much!"
"Die beiden Krüge passen super zur Keksdose-Danke!!"
"My mom loves her morning coffee and enjoys collecting various mugs. A few years ago I ask her what would be the “perfect” coffee mug. She went into great detail about how the handle has to fit her grip, the top rim needs to be slightly curved out for her to sip, it must be well crafted, unique, not too heavy, a nice shape....and on and on! So when I saw this one, I knew I found the absolute perfect mug for Mother’s Day, just what she had described! She LOVES it, Gigi! Thank you for sharing your talent and helping me give such a beautiful gift!"
"These are beautifully crafted and sturdy. They are even prettier than shown and communication with Gigi was excellent. I have received many compliments on these mugs."
