97JC+V64, the exact site location where our soil is excavated and disposed of, under a landslide mitigation project of a church in Sai Kung. Through months of processing, we recycled a small portion of this stoneware body, which can be thrown on a potter's wheel, or pinched by hands.
“Lavender, Myrrh, Tonka bean and vetiver create an nostalgic earthy richness, finished with a clean dried woody aroma."
