Xiem Clay Center was established in 2003 in Pasadena, California by award-winning ceramic artist and industrial designer Kevin Xiem Nguyen. The Center comprises a state-of-the-art communal ceramics studio, gallery and retail store. Xiem offers studio memberships and classes and presents bi-annual ceramic art fairs and exhibitions.
Xiem retail store stocks an extensive range of ceramic tools, books and supplies. Xiem is continuing to develop its own range of specialist ceramic tools--Xiem Studio Tools and will introduce a limited number of these tools to a larger audience at NCECA.
