Craft is an important counterbalance to our tech-centric, digital world

We’re a Rhode Island-based design studio dedicated to making high-quality products that last a lifetime. Hwang Bishop is comprised of a small team of ceramicists working out of our sunlight studio housed in one of the refurbished textile mills that dot our sea-side landscape. We love being part of a growing artisan community that is central to our town’s revitalization. Mingling classic, handmade methods, and materials with modern design and detail, we continue to create, explore, and evolve.

As Featured In

Hwang Bishop uses the highest quality high fired ceramics for strong bodied pieces and vivid clear colors. Most of our glazes, which have been formulated for us specifically, are high fired crackle glazes which will continue to craze over time. Each piece is individually cast, bisque fired and glazed fired, and slight variations in color and texture are to be expected. Pooling of glazes and inclusions are a normal part of the process which enhances the uniqueness of each piece.
