Slideshow and Lecture by Klein Reid
KleinReid was founded in Brooklyn in 1993 by James Klein and David Reid. A pioneer in ceramic design and maker movements, the studio is widely credited with bringing design to American studio pottery; marrying timeless art pottery methods and time-honored industrial techniques. The influential workshop is renowned for its elegant shapes, translucent porcelain, artisanal glazes, design integrity and impeccable craftsmanship. As it always has been, all work is made “from scratch” -- hand produced and hand glazed in-house.
KleinReid is a small, design-driven studio producing finely crafted work from our New York City studio for over twenty (20!) years.
Our hand-made work incorporates a variety of time-honored studio and industrial techniques. Our dense, translucent porcelain is hand-mixed from our own recipes. Our glazes complement our refined forms. Each glaze is lustrous and strong and free of harmful chemicals such as lead or barium. All our work goes through a 28-step process ending with a final kiln firing to over 2200 degrees.
Every new collection elegantly conveys goals that have remained consistent since KleinReid's inception: thoughtful design, fine craftsmanship and lasting beauty.
