Phil Elson, Hand Thrown Porcelain Tableware

Ceramics has been high up on our list of inspiring subjects lately, although I’m partial to all aspects of the field I seem to be pulled towards porcelain as a material for some reason or another. I think it’s because I like the transparency and the simplicity, it’s quite clean and precise which probably adheres to my sense of aesthetic. Today I wanted to bring into focus the wonderful works of Phil Elson, a maker from Australia, who really caught my eye …

Ceramics by Lilith Rockett

I’m not sure how we’ve not posted up Lilith Rockett’s work before, I’ve come across many ceramicists over the years, albeit each one having a slightly different flavour, but I’ve never seen such a complete collection as Lilith’s. She works primarily in porcelain which seems to be a massive attraction for me as a material, I love the translucency, fluidity, and also the soft look of the finished piece. Some people may see it as bland …

Akiko’s Pottery

Finding beautiful objects isn’t always an easy task, usually the best stuff is hiding away somewhere unusual, but I have to admit it’s nice when things just seem to fall into your lap. Luckily last night I came across this fantastic web store named Totokaelo, they’re actually a shop that I’ve seen and heard about before but the interesting part is the new opening of a dedicated section on their site called “Art-Object” which sells exclusively art …

Manos, Pottery Studio by Oscar Liedgren

This post is a case of one project leading to another as we return to talented Swedish filmmaker Oscar Liegren and his latest short film which features Potter Karin Eriksson in her studio. Many of you enjoyed Oscar’s previous piece we shared on Kiki, the Japanese design store in Stockholm, so I decided to keep a close eye on the filmmaker which luckily paid dividends today. It’s been a little while since we’ve featured a pottery based film …

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 …

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 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 …

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 …

Set of Ceramics by Maria Kristofersson

It’s hard to grumble at a little Nordic inspiration to start the week off so I’ve brought across the work of Swedish creative Maria Kristofersson as I really enjoyed browsing over her ceramic collection this weekend. Maria is often noted for her rugged yet quirky creations that hold quite an individual aesthetic. It’s evident that although Maria tends to work in conventional forms crafting bowls, plates and various vessels she does …

The Inspirations and Works of Potter Len Castle

Aha! Here we go again, more pottery and ceramics. This time in the form of New Zealand potter Len Castle who received a CBE for Services to Pottery and has also been awarded many merits over his lifetime for his work in the creative arts. Although he sadly passed away at the age of 86 in 2011 his work still lives on and it’s fantastic to see not only his pieces, which are magical and quite unbelievable, but also his insp …

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 …
