UMMURAMICS is based in Singapore
and is a line of mainly functional ceramics-ware series that was unintentionally created by an art student back in 2015. As a ceramics student working her way through her conceptual sculptures, Ummu found herself dedicated to creating pieces that could hold her tea and food. Creating dinnerware became a self indulgent habit filled up in between school projects.
Intending to share this wondrous craft, Ummu participated in an art market in 2015, and that was it. Ummuramics continued to flourish with new series of work, even after graduating Ummu continued making works through hand building on her family's dining table and eventually was able to now have a makeshift mini studio in the family balcony.
In 2019, Ummu switched from being a full time to a part time teacher to focus on her ceramics craft.
Every piece of Ummuramics are handmade here in Singapore by Ummu herself from a balcony somewhere in Woodlands, sometimes with not much help from her two cats.

The seaheart is a combination of the Heart in its real form with a seahorse's body.
A dedication to what could have been, to love something deeply and a mark for all the creation of Ummuramics.
With love, to the sea; from the sea, to love and to my craft.
