Sustainability
Victoria Gilles Fernández products are hand-built using techniques such as pinching, slab building, coiling, and inlaying. Not only does this conserve traditional practice, it is also energy saving since no pottery wheel is used. Victoria makes products in small batches or by custom commission, so little to no materials are wasted.

All the materials and ingredients used in Victoria’s ceramics are sourced from local businesses: biodegradable and paper-based materials are always chosen if possible. Most clays, packing and advertising materials she uses are both sourced and manufactured locally in the UK, and her glazes and stains are sourced from companies based in France and Germany.

Clay can be used indefinitely if not fired, so Victoria endeavours to use every single bit of her supply. In fact, Victoria measures the amount of water her process produces, and through refinement of her technique has reduced her consumption to just 200ml per day. The packing materials and business cards are all made from recycled materials, and she will recycle what materials she has on hand from other packages too. If a product comes out wrong or is misfired, it is repurposed in Victoria’s home or used in a future mosaic in her communal studio.
