The Smile Factory
The Smile Factory is the place where we create the seeds, but it’s up to you to make the story grow. Each smile is handcrafted with love by our team of Smile Artists.
From start to finish, every seed is handmade
with love and smiles. Hover over images below to see each stage of the process.
The Smile is Born
First, the blocks of clay are formed into small balls for the sculptors.
Each Seed is smoothed, flattened on the bottom and the eyes are created with a poke from two chopsticks…all done with lots of positive energy and thoughtfulness.
Dry and Fire
After the clay dries, the Smiles are loaded into the kiln where they are bisque fired (1,940 degrees…ouch!) and the moisture is removed.
