Here’s the dinnerware process: Kim paints (usually very large) canvases with her beloved fish, turtles and other marine life. These creatures are extracted from their backgrounds using photoshop, and are screen printed on large sheets.
Each image is applied by hand onto blank dinnerware, and then loaded into the kiln and fired at 1500 degrees which takes about 24 hours. When cool, the kiln is unloaded and each piece is carefully inspected; then added to inventory and stacked on shelves where we pick our orders.
Our automated inventory systems lets us know at any time what stock we have on hand and what is committed to orders. We also have alerts in place for low stock.
