Studio Pema is a one-woman company run by Tomomi Uchiyama Freitas in Apex, North Carolina. Tomomi has made pottery for more than 15 years. She studied art in college and began honing her pottery skills after graduation, focusing on wheel throwing and hand building.

Tomomi uses tools such as handmade stamps and vintage doilies to create texture and explore the relationship between clay’s surface and the glaze. She finds inspiration in the Japanese philosophy of “wabi-sabi,” or “the concept of appreciating imperfections,” and she takes pride in making each piece unique with individual variations in shape and size. Each item she makes is stamped with a lotus (or “pema” in Tibetan) maker’s mark, a symbol of purity of the body, speech, and mind.
