About Us

At Alterra we create artisan home goods and products inspired by our founders' roots to Latin America and the Caribbean, along with the joy and magic of creating 3D forms from earth and water.  

Each piece in our studio is individually handmade with meticulous craftsmanship and care. Our purposeful designs are shaped to be a part of your home and your everyday rituals. At Alterra we know how important the little things are, from your favorite cup for your morning coffee or tea, to the beautiful little bowl that catches all your jewelry at the end of a long day.

At Alterra we use our three guiding principles to create quality handmade products to help you bring mindfulness into your space.


Everything we make serves a purpose. We are sustainably focused, quality driven and consider function as important as beauty. We believe mindful moments allow joy and empowerment to blossom.


May the objects you purchase from us be a reminder of how beautiful and wild our world is. Something that started out as earth has gone through an extensive transformation to reach your hands. Infused with love and positive energy, we hope it brings joy to your space and everyday rituals. 


We are a latinx, woman owned company and believe in the power of art to bring people together and nurture connections. As we move forward and continue to grow, we aim to find ways to lift up the voices of fellow artists, especially those whose voices tend to go unheard.
