Ochre is a ceramics studio located in Byron Bay, Australia, that has made a significant impact in the world of pottery and design. Founded in 2018 by Lauren Siemonsma, Ochre quickly established itself as a prominent presence in the industry, seamlessly blending traditional craftsmanship with contemporary aesthetics.

An essential aspect of Ochre's approach lies in its unwavering commitment to sustainable and ethical practices. The studio is deeply dedicated to minimising its environmental footprint by prioritising locally sourced materials, employing energy-efficient techniques, and actively supporting local artisans. This dedication to sustainability aligns harmoniously with the brand's core values, which are rooted in a profound respect for nature and a passionate desire to create enduring products.

Lauren, the founder and designer of Ochre, has always held a guiding ethos of creating considerately and ethically while preserving the beauty of our planet. She envisions Ochre as more than just a Jewellery + Homewares Label or a Pottery Class but as a catalyst for a brighter future for all. Lauren's profound belief in this vision is evident as she states, "It's really important to me that Ochre is contributing towards a better future for all."

With every single sale, Ochre undertakes the noble initiative of planting a tree through One Tree Planted Australia. Lauren's hope is to witness the planting of thousands of trees annually, thanks to the support of this wonderful community. Since its inception in October 2020, Ochre has already made a remarkable impact by planting nearly 2,000 trees (1,929 to be exact) with the help of its dedicated supporters.

All of Ochre's pieces are meticulously handcrafted by Lauren in her Byron Bay studio, using exclusively Australian clay and recycled metals. Lauren takes immense pride in the fact that her studio and kiln, responsible for firing all of Ochre's ceramic creations, operate entirely on solar power. This commitment to renewable energy further exemplifies Ochre's dedication to minimising its environmental impact while producing exquisite, sustainable ceramics.
