Sustainability

Sustainability at Cisco and the Sun The sustainability of ceramics depends largely on the processes of the studio and the materials used. All Cisco and the Sun pieces are crafted with pure substances sourced directly from the earth, such as raw clay from the mountains of Cambodia. Enriched with natural minerals and metallic oxides, these elements are complimented by non-toxic, low impact glazes, or are left unadulterated with no glaze at all. The kilns used produce a dynamic energy and are highly insulated, allowing a sustainable low-firing process that still ensures the highest durability and quality. Cisco and the Sun also follows a strict policy of only firing the kiln when it is completely full, and throw pieces on a man-powered potter’s wheel. Dating back to the Neolithic period, ceramics are seeped in an unimaginable history and boast a timeless, natural grace.
