About Our Studio
We value the beauty in every detail & take the time to refine each step of our making process. From production through to delivering products to your door, we're hand crafted & sustainably mindful at each step of the journey. Read more below.
Designed & made in our melbourne based studio, each piece is hand crafted by Kate Brouwer, the hands and heart behind Asobimasu. Thrown on the wheel, each piece is trimmed, glazed and fired on site at our studio. With our very own clay blends and glaze recipes, making each piece uniquely Asobimasu.
Our Studio store is open & welcomes visitors on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9am-4pm.
We'll gladly show you around, drop by for a tour and view our products in person.
The Design Process
Asobimasu is designed with intention toward lasting beauty. Each piece is meticulously thought through with rigorous testing & creative processes before being brought into production.
Using strong Stoneware based clay bodies that will last and bear beauty for many years to come.
Encased in fluffy laters of shredded cardboard and honeycomb paper. We keep your pieces safe whilst being environmentally friendly. All our custom designed boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard & eco friendly inks.
The Design Ethos
Creating products that last.
We believe in products that bring beauty and life to their living environment, with a focus on longterm functionality. We forecast timeless design and have been producing our core range for over five years.
This means you can start your Asobimasu collection today and continue to collect for many years to come.
We believe in sustainability & durability. We use Australian materials and locally sourced clay bodies. As well as firing to a low stoneware, ensuring the longevity of our kiln while maintaining the integrity of each ceramic piece.
In studio, all ceramic waste materials are recovered, recycled and formed into new works.
Our Specialty Clay Blends
We use a variety of clays to blend together for each range of work. Using groggy stoneware bodies for strength, with elastic clay bodies for great throwing qualities. Each tone & clay body is chosen to create the perfect blend for each item.
