About Us

We're committed to creating beautiful, ethically made ceramics wares.

Convivial is a design and manufacturing company that labors over the creation of ceramic wares for the home, table, and garden categories. We are honored to have been producing wares in the USA and providing retail and wholesale services since our start of 2014. 

 Kansas City Missouri Ceramic Studio Convivial Production

Our Company

Convivial began in 2014 as a one woman show, wheel-throwing out of a home garage. We now operate out of a 8k sq/ft manufacturing and design space, handcrafting each piece with traditional ceramic processes. 


In our pursuit to create beautiful wares, we are passionate about implementing systems that are conscious of our environment. We are doing this by using 100% recyclable materials for all our shipping needs, being strategic in our buying to reduce unnecessary waste, simplifying our production process, and repurposing our non-recyclable, "too damaged to sell" items through our new Mosaic Program. 


Our Product

Convivial designs and produces wares for the home, table and garden categories. All designs are dreamed up by the company founder and owner Chentell Shannon and are continually inspired by the mission to create wares that inspire others towards a life of conviviality - a friendly, lively, and enjoyable atmosphere around good company.

We create the wares, you set the scene.


Our Process

All designs are handcrafted within our private manufacturing space in the Historic West Bottoms district of Kansas City, Mo. We're passionate about creating ties our customers can be proud to own - knowing they're purchasing a product that was thoughtfully and ethically made. 


Each piece is brought from dust to life through a seven days process that involved, in brief - clay mixing, casting, carving, cleaning, glazing, and kiln firing.
