Handmade soap starts with all natural oils, oils that are good enough to eat! If it's good enough to ingest, you bet it's good enough for the largest organ of your body, your skin.

"My handmade soaps start with olive oil, coconut oil, palm and/or lard. From there I add other oils including castor oil, soybean oil, aloe vera oil and various butters such as cocoa, shea, and even hemp."


Sense of smell is one of the most powerful senses to have, it can be one of the best ways to intrigue your memory. Not only is the smell of our candles important to us, but the fact that our candles are truly made with an all-natural US grown soy wax, a metal-free all-natural cotton wick, and a combination of fine fragrance and natural essential oils ensure the comfort of a clean burn.

Quality. Craftsmanship. Passion.  These are the tenets of our business and the very things that define who we are.  In a world where throw away has become the norm, we exist to make the exceptional.  Products made in a time honored and thoughtful way.  This is not an easy process but one that we feel is owed to our heritage and history.  

Once upon a time, products were made and not just produced.  


Lindsey Alicia Klump is the maker behind Handmade in Cincinnati.  She is an artist living and working in Cincinnati, Ohio who creates each piece by hand, focusing mostly on hand built vessels out of stoneware.

Lindsey earned her BFA from the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning with a focus in painting and photography.  As her art practice shifted and changed, she gravitated towards clay for its organic content and malleability.  She is currently working on her MA in Art Education. 

Each pot is handbuilt and one of a kind. This new work focuses on simple forms that play with the combination of matte glaze and surface design.  All wares are food, dishwasher, and microwave safe!
