Behind the Scenes
Welcome to the Crockd family.
We're more than just a pottery kit - we see ourselves as a millennial art therapy brand thats designed to get you out of your head, and into your hands.
If you're keen to learn more about us and why we started this journey you can check out our About Us page.
Otherwise, if you're keen to stick around we'd love to tell you a little bit more about how and where your kit was made...
We're based out of Burleigh Heads, on the Gold Coast in Australia. We're in a salty (and some times very hot) warehouse by the beach.
To us, it's more than just a sweat factory, it's the heart and soul of our small business. A place where we're talking' sh*t and dreaming up big ridiculous things.
Making the kits
Look, we're not perfect eco warriors over here, but we are genuinely REALLY trying to make sure that Crockd doesn't leave the earth in a worse place than we found it.
There's nothing worse than receiving a package that's stuffed with landfill. We try to ensure that everything inside our kits are either reusable or recyclable.
There's a lot of manual labour and elbow grease that goes into the making of these boxes. First of all, we chop the clay by hand.. then we bag in our biodegradable air tight bags, then we wrap that clay in hessian (this keeps it noice and snug in the box) and we tie it all together with twine.
The Clay Breakers and Tools are all tied by hand also. Sure - this sounds TOTALLY inefficient, but we actually really love being so hands on with the product. When people like you buy from us, we want you to know that we genuinely care about the investment you've made in us and so we want the product and it's packaging to reflect our gratitude.
From the bottom of our hearts - thank you.
Thanks for choosing to get Crockd with us. We hope you enjoy the whole experience from unboxing to creating and eventually using your pieces. We can't wait to see what you make.
