Clouds / Personal Ceramic Warmer


CLOUDS are personal ceramic warmers, made from slipcasted porcelain. Their forms are created from the contours of human body, giving them the character to nest softly on us. They have less environmental impact because they use no chemical and very little energy to provide warmth for up to two hours. Ceramics naturally retain heat very well. Plus, they are much friendlier material both physically and environmentally. Clouds can be easily heated using microwaves, oven, or boiling water. They are also ideal massagers to bring extra intimacy. They are functional, comfortable to hold, sustainable, and simply beautiful so you want them around.
