About

NUR CERAMICS IS A LIFESTYLE CERAMICS LINE BIRTHED OUT OF A PERSONAL JOURNEY INTO THE CERAMICS, CULTURE, AND RITUALS OF THE SAHARA.

Dina Nur Satti is the designer and maker behind Nur Ceramics, and produces every piece out of her studio.

Growing up around the Somali and Sudanese traditions of her parents, ceramics were a part of every day life and conveyed the daily rituals of life along the Sahara desert. Some of her earliest memories of ceramics were of her grandmother burning frankincense and sandalwood in mabkhars, and clay amphoras known as zir placed outside of homes, providing water for travelers.

Dina’s personal journey with the ceramic arts is also a path to reconnecting with the indigenous culture of her homeland, as the Nubians of Northern Sudan and Southern Egypt were among the most legendary potters of the ancient world.
