FINE ART OR CRAFT?

Seventy years ago, American museums finally recognized ceramic pieces as fine art. Despite this, they are often still relegated to the categories of decorative art or craft. Which is it? At Rockwood Ceramics, we view ceramic bottle creation as an artisanal process that yields bespoke works of art, worthy of admiration and appreciation. Craftsmanship meets fine art creation that respects and highlights the properties and power of ceramic.

When discussing with our clients, we ask them to view the bottles they will be creating with us as art. Clients are empowered to use their imagination and to view their future ceramic bottles as more than just another original bottle. Together, we take advantage of ceramic properties to ensure that hand-crafted elements are maximized, embossed features and engravings are impressive and visible, and unique features are enhanced. It is a noteworthy creative process.

It is essential that the ceramic bottle encapsulates the brand’s essence, attracting the desired target audience and convincing them to make a first purchase. Due to the premium status of ceramic bottles, our clients can sell the final product at a higher price, and with a greater margin. This allows them to cover the pricier shipping costs from China (freight costs and US tariffs), while still making a substantial profit. Minimum order quantities of 5,000 bottles means that clients can launch limited editions of bespoke bottles.
