Gallery Cruising – Ceramic Art

Looking at ceramic art online is sometimes deceptive because the pieces are generally photographed on a plain background and the dimensionality can’t easily be ascertained  to get an idea of the  the actual size. Even when you know the dimensions it’s still a challenge to conceptualize. Depending on the image editing, the texture can also be difficult to judge. Visiting a gallery has a distinct advantage in this regard. The upside with galleries online is you get to scope places that you might never get to see.

Pottery and ceramics are a good fit with galleries because they are generally compact and are usually not dependant on walls for display and can be featured in narrow spaces. The pottery shapes respond favourably to good lighting , and can be highlighted to enhance their styles and colours. I’ve assembled some  images from various galleries.

Contemporary Spanish Ceramic Arts


You only have to look at  architecture of Spain to see how bold and adventurous the Spanish are with their avant garde, abstract and evolving post modern styles. Their passion, impulsiveness and spiritual instincts lend itself to having a natural flair for unique contemporary designs. The likes of Picasso and Gaudi laid down deep foundations for the artists to expand upon and in Spain it is embraced as being culturally enriching and essential for the soul of the nation.
Their ceramics and pottery are blessed with the same flair and creativity.  Here is a collection of Spanish ceramicists that have contributed to their contemporary aesthetics.


Carme Collell



1998 Sinking Blue contemporary ceramic sculpture by Carme Collell

 ‘Sinking Blue’ – Carme Collell   1998

Carme was born in Barcelona in 1951. While studying a Master in Art and Education at New York University, she was introduced to ceramics by Lydia Buzis. . In 1979-80 she went on to study at the ceramics workshop of Josep Collell in Montevideo, Uruguay, along with taking drawing and painting classes with Guillermo Fernandez.  It was here she developed the technique of applying an oiled and burnished slip, single fired at 1080C.

Her work is represented in major collections in Spain and abroad, including: Museum Chateauroux in France, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Garth Clark Gallery in New York.

 Miguel Molet

Miguel Molet uses thorough treatment of his clays with polishing during the development of the piece or  terra sigellata  in preparing his pre-fired pots, a technique which has been revived by contempoary ceramicists, from ancient procedures dating back to 600 BC in Greece. He further finishes his pieces with smoking techniques, either naked Raku, carbonation in a closed oven, or simple smoked paper, wood, and other fuels.

Bobby Jaber


Bobby Jaber, a porcelain artist with a BS in the Sciences and a Masters of Fine Arts, has been a high school chemistry and physics teacher for more than 25 years. In his evolving Octahedral Porcelain Process, Jaber effortlessly combines elements from both the sciences and the arts. Seven years in its evolution, this approach to sculpting spherical porcelain vessels focuses on combining the exactitude of measurement, the mathematics of the sphere and exercises in geometry with the unique aesthetics of embedded design. The embedded geometric design patterns of these unique porcelain vessels embody many of  Buckminster Fuller’s elaborations of synergetics, a geometric system based on his attempts to understand “Nature’s Design.”


This short documentary has been produced by Bobby’s nephew Dave Altizer.

 Diana Fayt


Moving to San Francisco in the early nineties, Diana made her way as a server in restaurants while cultivating her artistic vision. It was in one of theses restaurants she met businesswoman Maggie Nugent of Synergy Designs, a ceramics wholesale outfit. Diana began designing for Synergy shortly thereafter. Her tenure with Synergy sent her back to Hungary, a factory in Hodmezovasarhely (Beavertown) where the Diana Fayt collection was produced. The work was imported and sold in the U.S from 1998 until 2002.

Drawing on her background as a painter, sculptor, printmaker and clayer, her surfaces are alive with strange and exotic stories, part folklore and part personal narrative. Diana has continued to produce her own enigmatic, one of a kind work.

French ceramic excellence – Rene Buthaud, Jean Mayodon

Rene Buthaud and Jean Mayodon were born seven years apart during the formative years of Art Nouveau around the turn of the 19th century. Rene Buthaud studied painting and engraving at the École des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux from 1903 to 1907 and then went to Pairs to study at the École des Beaux-Arts until 1913. Jean Mayodon had no formal training but lived in a community of artists in Serves and was influenced, especially in the classical styles, by artists he had met such as Henri Cros, Claude Monet, Isadora Duncan, Rodin and Bourdelle. Before he began his career producing ceramics in 1912 he spent 2 years in London doing antique restoration. He later went on  to assume the artistic leadership of the Manufacture of Sèvre in 1941, after having been its artistic counsellor in 1934.
After serving in WWI in 1918,, Rene Buthaud, with the encouragement of his colleagues in Bordeaux, the painters Jean Dupas and René Bissiere,  took up decorative ceramics. His early naturalistic, vegetal styles eventually gave way to more Art Deco geometric designs along with the introduction of primitive and classical themes and nude figures. These were stylistically adapted to the shape of his vases with a modernist touch. He favoured the female form and his pieces were populated with mythological goddesses, idealized female figures and stylized Odalisques, sometimes in narrative scenes. Ancient Greek, Persian and Oriental styles were utilised.

Similarly, Jean Mayodon developed decorative styles with figurative illustrations of exquisite quality and the vivid movement he infused in his ceramic works invoked the traditions of ancient antiquity using Centaurs, Sirens, Mermen, Mermaids and Goddesses and stylized animals as subject matter.

Both Buthaud and Mayodon were highly innovative with their glazing techniques including their wide use of craquelure glazes. In 1934 Rene Buthaud began to further develop the use of craquelure glaze, referring to it as ” peau de serpant z” for its snakeskin like appearance. Jean Mayodon favoured a gold crackling and achieved vibrant colours with low temperature firing using metal oxides fired up to 6 times, reglazing with each firing. Deep saffrons, tourquoise and jade greens and rich reds were developed.

The Museum of Decorative Arts in Bordeaux celebrates René Buthaud in its spaces and retains fifty of his works.  Both Rene Buthaud and Jean Mayodon are recognized as being influential in the development of the Art Deco style.
