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’s refined style has attracted a following and its wares are sought by museums, collectors, celebrities and politicians, including the last two presidents. But the majority is owned by people seeking to enhance their surroundings and elevate the everyday with well-made, affordable, functional forms. KleinReid’s pieces have been extensively shown in gallery and museum exhibitions, and retail in design stores and stylish boutiques worldwide. As taste-makers, James and David have designed collections for prestigious firms including Herman Miller, Dansk and Room&Board and have been profiled in national and international shelter, fashion and design periodicals, and on television.

In 1999 the duo approached one of its heroes, design legend Eva Zeisel (then 93) with a proposal to collaborate. Their work together over the last twelve years of Ms. Zeisel’s life spawned a collection of over 20 designs, a treasured friendship, and brought her iconic work to a new generation.

For 20+ years James and David have made a living hand making objects, supported by those who wish to use and live with their work. They’re honored and humbled by that. They share a personal vision to create what they love and each new collection elegantly conveys goals that have remained consistent since KleinReid’s inception: thoughtful design, fine craftsmanship and lasting beauty.

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.
