Beste Ogan Design

My design practice stemmed from finally following my life-long dream of creating and making through a life-changing move to Australia from Turkey.

My work is predominantly slip-cast stoneware and porcelain but I also like uniting the contrasting and complementing qualities of clay and wood.

I strive to create ‘textures to touch’ – intimate functional ceramic objects that make you not want to let go once you hold them; timeless designs that are a pleasure to use everyday. They celebrate ‘the beauty of the imperfect’, reflecting colours, textures and forms derived from nature.

My current range includes TABAK (stoneware tableware mimicking distressed leather), FUSE (porcelain-plywood table lamp), ADA (porcelain dinnerware mimicking pebbles and marble), and CHAKIL (porcelain-driftwood-seaglass jewellery).
