The story of Dor & Tan begins with a desire to break away from the disposability of modern life, to create objects with a more personal connection. They want their items to become cherished memories, that favourite cup you always pick when boiling the kettle, the soup bowl you reach for after being caught in the rain. Dor & Tan want to bring handcrafted items to people, that have a unique soft character which cannot be created any other way than by the hand of a maker.
Made sustainably, Dor & Tan use green energy at the studio to fire their kilns and power electric wheels. Dor & Tan also make sure that all of their packaging can be easily recycled, and where possible are even made from recycled materials. Trying their hardest to source locally within Cornwall, Dor & Tan minimise their environmental impact but also help support local businesses. Lastly, it is essential to Dor & Tan to craft ceramics that can age with grace, striving to create objects using quality materials and techniques, but also with longevity in aesthetics.
