Luvhaus Ceramics are the product of countless hours spent at the wheel experimenting, refining, defining and pulling the shapes from clay. The goal: to create something both functional and enlivening. That's a pleasure to use, that you reach for every day.
Shawn Kam,  Founder

Shawn is a potter and designer whose love of ceramics first started as a teenager with an apprenticeship making 17th century American earthenware, at a small production studio in his home state of Maine. He founded Luvhaus in 2012 as a place to channel a long standing love of craft and design.

He leads a small team in Luvhaus’ West Oakland production studio, where their focus is on elevating functional design using time honored craft.



Our studio is located in West Oakland where the building was originally home to one of the many canneries that drove Bay Area industry in the late 1800’s. In the 1970’s a family of artists bought the property and began working and creating there. It’s been home to ceramic and glass kilns and fine artists ever since.

We’re proud to carry this mantle of artistry and industry and work in a space with such a unique and vibrant history.



To us, a cup is a symbol.
Of gathering’s, of rest
and reflection,
sharing and community, conversations and love.
Our goal is to create something that will stand the test of time.
