adam spector ceramics

i am really liking the patterns and tones of this lovely wheel-thrown pottery from new york artist adam spector. adam enjoys the geometry found in nature. tortoise shells, wet rocks and coral that he encounters, along with historical decorative surfaces, serve as inspiration for his stoneware collection. he uses a variety of techniques including wax resist and glaze trailing to perfect his distinctive style.

miranda howe ceramics

i like these earthy tones and heavy textures on the functional and decorative pieces of new mexico artist miranda howe’s collection. miranda’s pieces are influenced by her world travels and the rhythmic qualities of repetitive patterns.

elizabeth prince ceramics

let’s have a look at the beautiful ceramic designs from uk artist elizabeth prince. in a previous life, elizabeth was a fine artist and a popular interior designer. her stolen moments in between commissions were spent working in clay, and as time passed she decided to make it her full time focus. i’m so glad she did, because these hand stamped, glazed, pierced and pinched results are fantastic.
