I've been making pottery since the early '90s. I was living in New York and working as a graphic designer, and wanted to buy a very simple vase for some flowering branches. I saw a lot of beautiful pottery but was looking specifically for something that looked like it had just been taken of the potter's wheel.

Not finding any, I decided to make one myself, and signed up for a class at Columbia Clay Works in Brooklyn. After just minutes at the wheel I knew I'd be throwing for life. 


As of January 2019, Mirena Kim Ceramics will be pausing wholesale orders until further notice. Commissions will also be limited to select designs and materials. We hope to re-emerge soon with new designs and pricing. Thank you for your patience while we retool and reinvent!
