Since its founding in 1950, Boehm Porcelain Studio has carefully handcrafted individual pieces of Boehm porcelain sculpture using traditional methods derived from the ancient Chinese process of porcelain making. Highly skilled and trained artisans and craftsmen complete a series of intricate procedures to create a finished product held to the highest standards of artistic detailing and quality craftsmanship.

Each porcelain sculpture begins its life on paper, in sketch form. The sculptor then determines its size, structure, and floral complements and shapes a rough model in modeling clay. Once the sculpture is finalized, mold makers proceed to carefully cut it into parts that complement each other. These processes can last weeks.

Boehm Porcelain Studio is recognized for creating pure porcelain sculpture from the whitest and purest clays. After being fired at approximately 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit for at least one full day, sculptures then remain in the kiln for two days until properly cooled. Pieces that successfully make it through the initial firing are refined to a smooth surface and hallmarks are applied to the bottom of the base, ready for the painter's brush, with re-firings in the kiln between applications of various colors. These colors are extracted in rock form from the earth and are then pulverized. Each art piece is fired at least three times. When finished, each piece is carefully examined against the original design and mold, in order to ensure that every detail is consistent and represents flawless craftsmanship.
