Meet the Maker Kym Gold, founder of dumae, and the ever growing ceramics team based in Los Angeles, CA. With decades of determination and passion for the creative process, Kym Gold applies what she has learned from her former businesses into dumae.

Founder Kym Gold of Style Union Home Collection

dumae offers unique, handmade ceramic place settings, bowls, mugs, sushi sets, sake sets, pitchers, cream and sugar sets, salt and pepper sets, pet bowls and ceramic snack “bags” made with an eye for style.

Kym is an identical triplet and says some of her motivation comes from her desire to stand out (literally) from her sisters. While in her teens, Kym took the continued ‘no’s’ until she found the one ‘yes' she knew would eventually come. She built her first business, on this ‘yes,” selling fashion damages on the Venice Beach Boardwalk and at nearby college campuses. Her new-found success enabled her to buy her first building in Santa Monica at the age of 20 (a deal she brokered herself)!  

Kym co-founded True Religion® in 2002. Eleven years later she sold her shares for more than $800 million allowing her to take a break from the fashion industry. With an interest in real estate, she began flipping houses giving her an outlet for her creativity. While staging homes, Kym’s frustration for a lack of beautiful home decor details pushed her to make them herself, and Style Union Home now dumae was born. 

At dumæ, we’re on a mission to elevate traditional craftsmanship and bring beauty to the spaces we share. Our one-of-a-kind, versatile pieces are designed and made in LA by skilled ceramic artists. We pride ourselves in creating jobs and keeping the tradition of ceramic art in America alive.
