About

The DECO Clay Craft Academy Story

CLAYCRAFT by DECO originated in 1981, when Kazuko Miyai opened the DECO Clay Craft Academy. Since this time, Kazuko has authored over twenty DECO Clay Craft books and developed her own line of air-dry clays known as CLAYCRAFT by DECO Soft Clay. She has continued to develop and enhance her unique techniques to produce sophisticated and complex dimensions. Kazuko is well known in the clay crafting world and is still actively involved in certifying more than 3,000 instructors across the U.S., Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Russia and many more. Each year she exhibits her work and shares her latest techniques with audiences all over the world.

Yukiko Miyai, trained under her mother, brought this unique concept to Honolulu, Hawaii where she opened her first studio in 2000. Since its conception, this division has expanded throughout the State of Hawaii, California and beyond. The U.S. branch currently has over 3000 members, with more than 500 certified instructors of this unique art form. Yukiko has also diversified the product line through the introduction of a vast array of floral design techniques featured in her instructional books, Clay Art for Special Occasions, Clay Art for All Seasons and DECO Clay Flowers. These techniques have drawn the attention from the master of crafting herself, as it was featured on the Martha Stewart show.

DECO Clay Craft Academy and its certified instructors offers classes to create lifelike flowers, ornaments, accessories and other craft items using our original, CLAYCRAFT by DECO Soft Clay and the CLAYCRAFT by DECO tool line.
