My name is Charmian and I started Bisuketto Studio in November 2015. The name, meaning biscuit in Japanese, refers to the biscuit firing or first firing stage in ceramics.
I named my studio after this stage because it is my favourite fleeting moment with my handmade pieces, the biscuit stage; naked and bare, before it is dressed in glaze.
Each piece is hand thrown on the potter's wheel and twice fired. I hope that the handmade process is legible in the final form. A handmade item has this 'soul' that has the potential to transform simple everyday tasks to a cherished ritual.
