Sweden’s Master Potter, Berndt Friberg

It’s been a little while since I’ve found some pottery that’s really inspired me, this morning though I was lucky enough to stumble across Swedish artist Berndt Friberg. He had a few nicknames in his time but he was usually called “Hand of God” amongst other potters and his circle of friends, he was known for being a perfectionist and did not keep pieces which were not to his satisfaction. Friberg was born to a family of potters and started his …

Collection of Ceramics by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott

I was admiring the work of ceramic artist Gwyn Hassen Pigott last night, so I’ve brought across a handful of imagery from this artist who’s been working in the field for almost 60 years now. It’s hard not to appreciate someone who’s been working in the same area for this long, in my generation I think it’s an ideal thats on the decline but hopefully a few of you will appreciate this concept and will …

Ceramic Works by Kirstie Van Noort

Previously Daniel put together a nice concise post on Eindhoven based designer Kirstie Van Noort in the latter part of 2011. Today I decided to explore her works again after my amazement at her ceramic bowls, cups and other items, particularly the selection that she’s produced over the last few months. I have to say what originally attracted me was the fact that she’s a very experimental individual, the work that Daniel showcased was …

Short Film on Potblack Ceramics

We rejoin the craft theme running through this week as we visit the creations of Ceramicist Travis Jeffery’s and his Melbourne based studio through the medium of film. Providing a handcrafted element to the top restaurants in the city, Travis is known for his sleek minimal designs and eye for detailing in each of his creations. This project is a little more about the thoughts and feelings of the man himself rather than his creation process …

Collection of Works from Regis Brodie

I thought I’d stick with craft again after sharing wood turner Jonathan Leech with you all last time around. Today I was impressed with the multifaceted nature of creative Regis Brodie’s work, so I’ve brought across a selection as a nod of appreciation to the Pittsburgh based artist, potter, sculptor and professional speaker. As you can see from what we have here Regis likes to take quite an expressive approach to a clean cut form, be it …

The Art of Making by Heath Ceramics

I always seem to be landing on the Heath Ceramics webpage so why it’s taken me this long to bring across an article from them is a little beyond me. There’s no time like the present to resurrect this however which is why I’ve raided their “Art of Making” section as a little nod to the work that they’ve been doing since 1948 would you believe. Not only do Heath produce some mind-blowing pottery and ceramics they’re really open to shar …

Short Film on Gustavo Perez

It’s almost two weeks to the day now that I brought across the collection of Mexican ceramic artist Gustavo Perez so it was quite a welcome coincidence to see him pop up again today in this delightful short film. The last piece I posted on Gustavo was centred around the exhibition currently taking place at Erskine Hall and Coe gallery in London, in contrast to today where this project highlights Mr Perez getting his hands …

A look Inside the Sukima Studio

I’ll be honest here and admit I don’t know an awful lot about the Sukima Studio in Denmark, but I enjoyed these photos of their working space all the same so I’ve brought them across as a little nod of appreciation to their craft. What I do know is that their small team dedicates itself to creating porcelain objects by hand in a beautiful rustic style, so we’re in for a bit of a visual treat here with this great photography series. This project highlights …

Porcelain by Taizo Kuroda

My mind is always brought to debate when I see Japanese ceramics and pottery as I’m often baffled by their ability to craft something that is equally clean and pure as it is rich in substance and character. Perhaps it’s the Japanese’s inherent connection to perfecting each process which brings out such beauty, but in my humble opinion I’ve seen few better than this collection we’re sharing today, created by Taizo Kuroda. With …

Works from the Otani Pottery Studio, Japan

Some lovely imagery from the Otani Pottery Studio, a website that I stumbled across this morning on my travels, very pure and simple, it was a perfect way to start my day. The Otani studio was actually founded by husband and wife team Tetsuya and Momoko Otani in 2008. It’s located in Shigaraki, one of the 6 oldest pottery sites in Japan, they live in the middle of the mountains with their 3 daughters, 2 cats and 1 dog …

Ceramics and Objects by Sfera

A blog worth visiting is that of Iain Claridge, a small independent design studio based in Bristol, England. They’re regularly showcasing some inspiring imagery and great design related works, so today I decided to put together something that I spotted on their blog a few days back, the works of Sfera. Although Iain Claridge captured some images they didn’t really delve into the company as such so I thought it would be nice to do …

Hedwig Bollhagen Workshops for Ceramics Photographed by Janne Peters

Today I thought I’d pick up some fantastic imagery taken by the ever so impressive German Photographer Janne Peters. Her works are very diverse in subject but she has a crisp and modern aesthetic that’s nice to see in this often cluttered world. I’m particularly fond of her neutral colour palette, the whites and dark greys always make for great viewing. This series that I’ve …
