How we transform clay into shell . . .
Special Thanks to SSPATIAL and Siam Discovery, Bangkok
The Oceanology collection is inspired by the relationship between humans and nature, and originates from our life near the sea. These naturalistic ceramic pieces were created in the image of the ocean. Shapes, textures and colours evoke shells, salt and sand. Each piece is hand crafted from natural clays by artisans in our Bangkok based studio.
These naturalistic trinket potteries were made from pure earth minerals. Every piece was delicately handcrafted by Bangkok artisans.
Each detail represents fresh touches of smooth sea foam, crispy sand, luscious salt water, and soothing breezy atmosphere.
Yarnnakarn wishes that this collective trinkets tableware collection would enhance most of your flavorful experiences to cherish quality living and makes the moments memorable.
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.

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.
Flower is symbolic of nature, purity, feelings and giving. This tableware collection represents contemporary way to celebrate special occasions. Pressed flowers and life-size insects details are composed, and delicately carved on each prototype. Their beauty and freshness can be preserved into memory pieces, which is way to keep the specific moments alive.
