Yarnnakarn is a home studio located in the center of Bangkok at Nanglinchee road where we create our wishful ceramic items in the experiment of techniques and choice of materials. The contemporary ceramic pieces are gradually derived through the interactions between the maker and clay. The story of individual piece is written in glazes, textures, and details – emerging from time, temperature and moisture of its own.
Our studio was founded in 2010 by Karin Phisolyabut, who earned a B.A. in Ceramic Design from Thailand and a M.A. in Fine Arts from the United Kingdom.
The name “Yarnnakarn Arts & Crafts Studio” was created by his sister, Prim, who works with him in their family business. In Later years, this family business joined local craftsmen in the area, and Karin’s family members all work together in our home studio in Bangkok.
“Yarnnakarn” means to continue to establish the correlation between the idea of nostalgia and the passage of time.
