Ceramics, an ancient and enduring craft, possesses an inherent artistic essence, evolving into art even during its formative stages. The rich tapestry of cultures that have inhabited the lands now known as Bulgaria has bequeathed a profound legacy, evident in the diverse ceramics of the Thracians, Romans, Slavs, and Proto-Bulgarians. Proximity to the Mediterranean's vibrant and diverse culture further influenced the development of Bulgarian craftsmanship.

At DankoHandmade, we honor tradition by reimagining it in a contemporary light. Each of our product lines exudes its unique style and character, all while radiating the comforting warmth of Bulgaria's soil.

The Ceramics-Making Journey:
(Explore our shop to uncover more facets of ceramics crafting)

The alchemical process of firing clay is nothing short of magical, transforming it from a pliable raw material into the enduring substance we know as ceramics. Ceramics, both robust and stone-like, have withstood the test of time. The secret lies in the dance between clay and fire.
Firing is the crucible that elevates clay and glazes to high temperatures. The ultimate goal is to bring these elements to a state of maturity, where they meld harmoniously. (Rest assured, your pottery won't literally melt; it's a molecular transformation.)
Bisque firing marks the first encounter with intense heat. It vitrifies the clay, preparing it for the application of glazes without sacrificing their integrity. The balance is delicate.
After the glazes have been applied and allowed to dry, our carefully crafted pieces journey into the kiln for the final glaze firing. Each item is meticulously arranged to ensure they don't make contact, preventing any unintended fusion during the process.
The kiln, our artistic forge, slowly ascends to the precise temperature required to bring the clay and glazes to their full potential. Afterward, it's a gradual descent into cooling. Only when the kiln is fully settled can we unveil the treasures within.

    Privacy policy

    This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

    To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

    I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
    • as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
    • when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
    • if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
    • as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

    Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
    • Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
    • Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
    • Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
    • Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

    I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for up to four years.

    I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

    If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
    • Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
    • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
    • Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
    • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

    For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Daniel Nikolov, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at Alternately, you may send a letter to me at:
