"I cherish every moment spent bringing my artistic visions to life."

Rui Ceramics founder and artist – “As soon as I got my hands in the clay, I was hooked. The tactile sensation, the malleability, and the endless possibilities it offered ignited a fire within me that could not be extinguished. In that transformative moment, I knew that I could never go back to working in the confines of a bank.

The world of pottery opened up a whole new realm of creativity and self-expression for me. It allowed me to break free from the monotony of numbers and spreadsheets and dive headfirst into a world of imagination and artistic exploration. The clay became my medium of choice, and every time I touched it, I felt a surge of inspiration and a profound connection to the ancient art form.

Leaving behind the security of a traditional career was a leap of faith, but it was a leap that I knew I had to take. The satisfaction and fulfilment I found in creating with clay surpassed any monetary gain or stability that a corporate job could offer. The joy of shaping the clay with my hands, the thrill of watching a form emerge from a lump of earth, and the sense of accomplishment when a piece was completed were all priceless rewards that made every risk worthwhile.

Stepping into the world of pottery has been a journey of self-discovery, growth, and unwavering passion. It has allowed me to fully embrace my true calling and to immerse myself in a craft that speaks to my soul. Each day, I am grateful for the opportunity to follow my artistic dreams and to share my love for pottery with others.

Working with clay has taught me patience, perseverance, and the beauty of embracing imperfections. It has taught me to trust my instincts, to push boundaries, and to never shy away from taking creative risks. Through the art of pottery, I have found my voice, and it has become the language through which I express my deepest emotions and connect with others.

Choosing this path has not always been easy, but it has been the most fulfilling and rewarding decision of my life. The world of banking may have offered stability, but pottery has offered me a life filled with passion, purpose, and endless possibilities. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
