Hayley & Robbie - Founders

Handcrafting all of Earth & Nectar's functional stoneware - Hayley's love for ceramics began when she fell in love with fine-china teacups in her 20s, earning her the nickname 'teacup' from her husband Robbie. Believing in the philosophy of 'always use your best china' Hayley uses her best every day rather than saving it for special occasions. This led Hayley to specialise in small-batch, modern functional pottery for everyday use.

After completing a degree in Media Arts, Hayley traveled extensively through India and Southeast Asia. It was during this time, Hayley was introduced to the ancient art of tea making. The alluring aromatic blend of masala chai in India, matcha - a truly special tea in Thailand and Japan - and upon returning to Australia bringing back her new found knowledge, Hayley fell in love with ceremonial cacao, a comforting rich chocolaty drink to open the heart and focus the mind.

It was during these moments of preparation, Hayley felt a true connection to self - a thoughtful act to stop, take time and reflect. This alignment of preparing and mindfully consuming a freshly brewed cup of chai, whisked matcha or cacao brought a sense of calm, a grounding ritual to the everyday chaos of modern busyness and distractions in life.
