"Creating hand-formed ceramics designed for their decorative beauty."
Inspired by the ceramics Rebecca got to appreciate on an overseas holiday in 2008, she returned home and began working with clay. What began as a passionate hobby evolved into her small business - RJ Crosses Ceramics.
In 2013, Rebecca retired from her profession as a lawyer to embark on her dream seachange of being a full time ceramicist.
The majority of ceramics she designs and makes are created for their decorative beauty with the intention that they be touched, hung, worn, given and admired.
All of RJ Crosses Ceramics' creations are designed and made in our home studio in Kensington Park, South Australia.
The most significant inclusion to the variety of ceramics made by Rebecca, are her Christmas decorations. Born out of a desire to create keepsake ceramic ornaments that will last a lifetime, she spends much of her year designing new lines of
Christmas ceramics. They are designed to decorate trees, tie to presents or form part of a Christmas table setting. Rebecca says it is an absolute thrill to know that so many of her ceramics play a role in creating that magic that
surrounds Christmas in many Australian and overseas homes.
“The scent of Eucalyptus” range of Christmas ornaments are designed to celebrate an Australian Christmas, replacing the traditional European Christmas motifs with uniquely Australian ones.
RJ Crosses Ceramics' non-Christmas creations include an eclectic range of ceramic jewellery; ring dishes; spoons; planters; and, wind-chimes; among other things. Our wind-chimes are made using driftwood collected along beaches 0n the
Yorke Peninsula, making them uniquely South Australian. The jewel-like colours of the ocean have remained a constant influence on Rebecca's work.
