In a fast paced world of machines and automation, GRAMMAR is slowing down and holding tight to the tradition of handcrafted goods.
The process to make one piece is labor intensive. From clay to a finished piece of jewelry, there are several steps that go into the creation of one piece.
After the design process, ceramic parts are hand cut from sheets of clay and each part is assembled individually. Each ceramic part goes through two kiln firings; one to prepare for glazing (bisque) and the second to set the glaze, which is applied in liquid form.
GRAMMAR is mindful of environmental sustainability and is conscious of the energy involved in creating its work. To this effort, products are made in small batches and materials are mindfully consumed and sourced as locally as possible.
GRAMMAR is currently a small, one person, operation and has been primarily focused on design and product development. The next step is to work to present more transparency in our processes and impacts. Please look forward to learning more in the near future. GRAMMAR is also researching for it's growth to include 100% environmental sustainability by 2020. Our goal is to be a part of the transformation of our, often harmful, fashion design industry.
