How I Work

There is no assembly line at Yume Studio. Every piece I make is completely unique, crafted with its own style.

The purpose of wedging is to de--air the clay and make it more plastic.

First I have to center the clay, then pull it up into the desired shape.

Trimming is when a piece is leather hard. The purpose is to remove excess clay and create the final shape.

The spout and body are made separately and attached after the body is trimmed.

The handle is made separately and attached to the body.

The pots must be completely dry before firing or they might explode in the kiln.

The pots are fired to a low temperature to harden the clay before applying the glaze.

Glaze is applied to the bisqued pieces.

This is a high temperature glaze firing that takes about 15 hours.
