It all starts with a lump of clay. I use a stoneware clay which is smooth giving a very fine finish to my work. It is a very verstile clay, great to work with for throwing, handbuilding and doing slab work. Charan Sachar

All the construction and handbuilding of pieces from different parts is done by hand making each piece very unique. In the background you can see all the chemicals I use to make my own glazes and the Peter Pugger pugmill that I use to recycle my clay. Nothing goes to waste and all scraps of clay get recycled minimizing the effect on the environment.

All my work is food, microwave, dishwasher and oven safe.

One can never have enough shelf space in a studio. My studio is ~330sqft. Pretty small, but I make use of every inch I can get. Charan Sachar

Another view of the entire studio overlooking my backyard. On the right you can see my wheel on blocks, since I prefer throwing standing up. Majority of my tools hang on a peg board, so they are easy to grab and I don't have to hunt in a box.

On the left is my spray booth which I use for spraying glazes on larger pieces. Also on the left is my L&L kiln in which all pieces get fired.

I am working on the Northstar slab roller which I use very often as well. I like that it doubles as a workpace too.

Unloading the kiln is always fun when my studio just fills with color and patterns.
