Carole Aoki Studio



California Studio 1980 to 1989


New York Studio 1990 to 2017

For over 40 years I have maintained a ceramic studio, first in the wooded hills above Santa Rosa, Calif. In 1991 I moved to New York City’s Upper West Side, and in 2017 I moved to Accord, N.Y., in the Hudson Valley where I designed and built a new studio from the ground up.

“I’m captivated by the process of creating objects. First, imagining an idea and creating a design. Next, selecting raw materials, appropriate tools, and developing a process. And finally, making an object of beautiful simplicity.”
