ceramic production

I’m trying to source a vendor to produce some ceramic items to our spec (figures, cups, bowls) and having trouble starting to find some leads in that category. Basic web searches aren’t We’re ideally looking domestically in north america, but would also entertain foriegn sources. Any recommendations?

For really basic items like porcelain kitchenware, it’s possible that there aren’t any domestic producers at all.

It really seems like the kind of things most people would go to China for. A good place to start for that is Alibaba. Just looking at ceramic cups suppliers (淘宝网 - 淘!我喜欢), it seems like there’s a lot of companies you could try.
