Stoneware is made from clay and fired at high temperatures in a kiln to harden. Characteristically, stoneware is less porous and more durable than earthenware.
Much like other clay products, stoneware is also made by kneading the clay and then throwing it onto a pottery wheel. The shaped clay product then goes through the process of bisque firing, glaze application, drying, and glaze firing to make the final product.
Pottery in the Indian subcontinent has a long history — it has existed as a craft form for centuries. Ikai Asai’s collection of stoneware is developed in collaboration with small-scale units and largely processed by hand — bringing together the best of industrial technology and craft.
