Handcrafted pottery for everyday use
Crafted to last

We believe that our beautiful, handmade pottery improves people's lives.

House of Klei is an independently run boutique clay studio in Pune offering functional, wheel-thrown ceramic homewares. It came into existence in 2020 with the vision to “bring a little more joy into the homes of others.” Here at HOK studio, we create a range of contemporary, design-led functional pottery articles like mugs, plates, bowls, tumblers, jars, platters, oil & vinegar pourers, and all that tells a story.

For us, pottery isn’t about churning out a mug and a plate; it’s about sharing our love of clay with others. The studio also offers pottery classes to beginners and intermediate students with curious minds. We welcome you to unwind and experience the art of making.
