10+ years experience in ceramics

Established in 1985 by the late Prof. Somthavil Urasyanandana, Som Ceramics Studio is located in Bangkok, Thailand and is a small yet versatile studio. To conserve the zeal of Prof. Somthavil in the arts of making ceramics wares and her enthusiasm in passing on her knowledge and skills to younger generations, Mr. Prot Urasyanandana, her youngest son, took over the studio. He has inherited this passion in ceramics design from his mother and also works as a co-teacher in the studio.
About the founder:
Prof. Somthavil studied Ceramics Design from Canbrook, Academy of Arts at Michigan, U.S.A. When she came back to Thailand, she made teaching ceramics design a career by becoming a professor at Chulalongkorn University (a top-five university in Thailand) and many others universities in Bangkok over the period of more than 30 years. Her dedication at work was prominent so much so that she became the Head of Industrial Design Department, Faculty of Architecture.
During her active career as a devoted teacher and a creative pottery and ceramics ware artist, she had made a large collection of uniquely designed ceramics wares that she proudly scripted her name “Som” on every piece of her work. Her striking designs and distinctive colouring techniques caught the world's attention and her precious creations with “Som” inscription were recognised worldwide. Prof. Somthavil also was granted the National Artist Award in 1998.
After retirement, she wanted to keep her love in making ceramics wares vibrant so she established Som Ceramics Studio at her residence in 1985.
