Pottery by Yuichiro and Tomoko Suzuki

With our newest feature that released over the weekend with potter Adam Silverman, it seemed a bit rude to post any other pottery as we could be seen to specialise in one specific area. As you know, that’s not the case. But when I homed in on the good work of Japanese duo Yuichiro and Tomo Suzuki, the grainy photographs really inspired me and the aesthetics were nice to match. Actually, I’ve been thinking about taking my own 35mm …

Ceramics by Justine Allison

Often you find out a lot about a creative by their ‘about’ or ‘bio’ page, I like to hear what they have to say and what their inspirations are, whether it be as a maker or a designer. Through all these years finding and sourcing inspiration for the site I have come across many common traits that connect these individuals together in certain ways. One such idea is the mixture of functionality and aesthetic beauty. Obviously, in the craft sector …

Functional Objects by Bruce Rowe of Anchor Ceramics

It’s great when you hear the mixture of backgrounds that different creatives come from, especially those who ‘make’. In fact, I’m interviewing an interesting individual at the moment who certainly has a wide variety of influences and inspirations, I was shocked to hear all the different angles that he’s explored and the trips that he’s taken abroad. I guess all of this accumulates in …

One of a Kind Ceramics by Atelier Stella

As you all know I’m a bit of a functionalist at heart, but I’m always intrigued when designers give their work that added touch of personality and character. Take for example these amazing ceramics by Stella Baggott, who makes these pieces under the alias Atelier Stella in London, England. It’s great to see someone local to us producing items like this on a regular basis, even if Stella only makes them when she gets time away from her other creative …

Ceramic Works by Renaud Suave of Atelier des Cents-Ans

We’re taking a small break from pottery at our local workshop due to it being closed for a month, so I’ve been hunting around for some inspiration to tide me over. It seems like a good idea to keep a little workbook of ideas that could come in handy whilst throwing on the wheel. Although I have to admit I’ve been having trouble translating these forms that I visualise into physical creations, but I’m guess …

Pottery Works by Kazunori Ohnaka

As we take a little break here on the blog for Christmas I often find myself routing around online for inspiration, especially when the weather is bad and I’m stuck inside. Today happens to be one of those days, but I was lucky enough to come across a fantastic collection of works by Japanese potter Kazunori Ohnaka. The internet is bound to slow down a little so hopefully this will fuel your fire if you’re into pottery, craft, or have a general …

Works by Verónica Jaramillo’s Ceramic Workshop

I’ve been on a serious hunt for some ceramics over the past week or so. I didn’t want to settle for something of lesser quality, that’s not my style, and it wasn’t really on my list to pull a selection from Japan again since I’ve turned to there a lot lately in search of inspiration. So I took an indirect route and discovered these creations made by Verónica Jaramillo’s ceramic workshop in …

Ceramics by Fumihiro Toda

Coming across great ceramics and pottery has been quite an easy task for me lately, it doesn’t take long to find an artist I like whilst browsing a Japanese shop or website, this obviously gets me researching on the specific individual. Unfortunately when I arrive at their portfolio page they’re usually lacking on the image front, not in terms of substance but in terms of photo size so it’s hard to bring across, but there can be the rare case …

Ceramics by Naotsugu Yoshida

Today we’re going to explore the work of Naotsugu Yoshida, a potter who lives at the foothills of Mt.Fuji, he’s a very talented individual who makes some beautiful pots of all shapes and sizes. Before we get into the …
