Ceramicist James Whiting

 

James Whiting  lived in Japan for many years and his passion for ceramics developed there; the Japanese aesthetic has greatly influenced his work. This is apparent with the innate balance and harmony that is revealed in his pieces. Viewing his ceramics is a journey through landscapes of textural diversity, favouring earthy tones with the occasional splash of colour. His current work is predominately hand-built and functional.. Over the years he has worked with a wide variety of techniques: coils, slabs, nerikomi (layering colored clays), scraffito, inlay, pinch pots, wax resist and slip/underglaze painting, embossing, burnishing, sculpting/hollowing-out/re-assembling, and others, and is always exploring new ideas and techniques.

He presently resides in the  San Francisco Bay Area where he also pursues photography and teaching. James Whiting’s website is HERE
