boohua is a design studio in Shanghai. Since 2012 we have been designing and making ceramic jewelry for daily wear. All our ceramics – including porcelain and clay – are handmade in China.

It is not the normal “made in China”, but done in a limited quantity and a most sophisticated crafts way. Each biscuit is hand shaped with help of simple tools. Then fired with 900°C (for clay) or 1300°C (for porcelain). Tiny as the dimensions they are of, difficult to go through all the processes. In this sense, we see ceramics as valuable as gemstone or expensive metals. They are more like miniature arts work, which you can carry around with you – instead of displaying in your dining table or living room. Since 2018, boohua started to introduce her design to the local european customers as one of the partners moved to Germany.

All the ceramic pieces are handmade in Jingdezhen – the thousand-year-old ceramic industry city located 500KM away from Shanghai. Although these miniature pieces are, all the hand working procedures are not to be skipped – pugging, molding or sculpting, low-temperature firing, polishing, washing, painting, glazing, high-temperature firing.

As a matter of fact, the smaller the sizes are, the more difficult it is to carry out all these work. Our ceramic pieces are mostly burned in a high temperature of 1300 degrees celsius, where no lead remains. It is safe to wear them daily.
