Cups, Pots and Bowls by Ryoma Matsubara

Some beautiful cups, pots and bowls that I found whilst browsing a favourite around here, kurasukoto.com in Japan. They’ve always got an interesting selection of ceramics, textiles and cutlery, so as you can imagine I’m constantly looking that way for inspiration and they rarely disappoint, this time bringing over a range of imagery by creative Ryoma Matsubara. Ryoma was born in the Oita prefecture in 1975 and now …

Ann Linnemann, Ceramic Designer, Artist and Potter

If you’re anything like me every so often you’ll come across a designer or artist who seems to create work that’s near enough perfect. It doesn’t happen all that often but when it does every photo you view just seems to hit home, and when I bring it across here to showcase it’s impossible to pick up a small selection of imagery to sum up their portfolio. This happened to me earlier when I …

Ceramic Objects by Tara Shackell

Today I’m going to highlight some incredible ceramic work by Tara Shackwell, a ceramic artist living and working in Melbourne. I’ve come across her work several times before and I thought it was about time I showcased it on the site, it’s one of those things where it seems like fate. Tara mainly makes functional tableware which is quite appealing in itself, I like how pottery can bring this out in people, you get to sit and contemplate how you …

Inside the Billy Lloyd Ceramics Studio

Some of you may have seen that we’re going to be changing quite a few things here on the site over the next coming weeks. It’s fun seeing the development of the site that I started when I was a youngster, even to this day I still can’t believe the changes that have been made and it’s satisfying to know that we’re narrowing down the subject quite dramatically. I feel clarity coming on. This new website that I’m working on should hopefully …

Ceramics at Mr Kitly

So although we don’t tend to write over the weekend I still spend my mornings on the look out for new and inspiring work, sometimes I just stumble across creative things due to general research, other times one subject leads to another or I’m re-visiting a place that we’ve come across before. It’s a thrill uncovering new content and talent that no one else has seen, so this shop that we’re showcasing today named Mr Kitly must …

Ceramics and Stoneware by Matthias Kaiser

I’ve known and cooperated with Matthias Kaiser for quite a while now, he’s a great guy with a unique talent. If you haven’t seen his works before Matthias makes porcelain objects such as vases and bowls, he also produces stoneware items like teapots and plates, sometimes you may even see him dabble in sculpture. Why I find him interesting is because of his life story and his general aesthetic, I’m always amazed by the backgro …

Peter Shire: Cups 1974 – 2012 by Eric Minh Swenson

The good folks at South Willard put me onto this fantastic video based on Los Angeles based artist Peter Shire. Funnily enough last week I was actually browsing Peter’s website and it struck me how playful and comedic his work is, it’s great to know that he doesn’t take life too seriously and that he’s always experimenting. We’ve probably said this many times before about the companies …

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 …

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 …

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 …
