Works by Ceramic Artist and Sculptor Andrei Davidoff

Today I’ll be making my weekly visit to the local pottery studio. I’ve been meddling with the idea of producing a teapot on the wheel for a while, so I’ve been watching various tutorials to get an idea of how to make such an object. Like researching any craftsmen, these guys have been doing it for years and years, so it’s fascinating to see them show their skill-set in full flow. Especially the Japan …

Wood Fired Pottery by Hannah Lawrence

Yesterday at the pottery studio I was determined to make a teapot, so I had the studio owner throw the main body for me on the wheel to show the general process and how one can be formed. Like anything new, my first set of attempts were extremely poor, and I couldn’t quite grasp what I was actually trying to do. As time passed, many hours in fact, I finally got the hang of it and I could make the basic shape of the body without the clay collapsing on me …

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 …

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 …

Yoko Ozawa Pottery

Some quirky ceramics by Melbourne based potter Yoko Ozawa. Born in Japan, Yoko caught my attention with her simplistic yet rustic style that revolves around function, each piece is quite different in it’s own little way. Rough edges here and there all add to the overall aesthetic, superb stuff if you ask me. Take the white salad bowl for example with the swirly detailing inside, also the tea pot which is pretty much stripped down …
