Pottery Arts Video

 

Three videos are presented here on ceramic artists, all contemporary, with different styles and approaches

 

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.

” As a sculptor of porcelain using neriage as a technique, the challenge for me is to express as accurately as possible, an idea whose perfection exists only in the mind. “  .. Bobby Jaber

David and Margaret Frith

 

David and Margaret have been creating pottery together for fifty years.  Hard work and commitment underlie this unique partnership. Their pots are firmly located in the contemporary but express the legacy of diverse traditions.  Margaret produces delicate forms with painted or carved motifs in porcelain and David works on a larger scale with high fired stoneware.

 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.

Collecting Cookie and Biscuit jars

Raiding the cookie jar

 

McCoy, American Bisque, Brush, Abingdon, Regal China, Roseville and Shawnee — all the grand old pottery companies in the USA, made cookie jars of some type or another and they are all highly collectible brands. Likewise in Europe, some of the famous brands like Royal Dalton, Moorcroft, Wedgewood, Royal Staffordshire and Clarice Cliff all produced cookie jars or biscuit jars, as they preferred to call them.  Cookie/biscuit barrels or jars, have been used in England since the latter part of the 18th century. This coincided with the rise in popularity of the ritual of afternoon tea drinking. In the USA, cookie jars started to appear around 1929 and went into wider production during the ’30s, the  Brush Pottery Company in Zanesville being recognized as the first. The golden age  for American cookie jar production covers the years from 1940 until 1970, with several manufacturers rising to prominence.

In 1988, Sotheby`s auctioned off Andy Warhol’s belongings, including 175 cookie jars. The New York auction house estimated they would fetch $7,000. After the spirited bidding had reached its final conclusion, the collection had gone for $247,830. Most of the  of the interest was generated by the Warhol name but it also put cookie jars into a different dimension of respectability in the collecting sphere. A discernible lift in the interest in cookie jar collecting followed. Over the decades Cookie Jars have represented various pop culture trends and have quite often featured outlandish designs.

Even newer cookie jars are in demand. Collectors are purchasing  jars made in the `70s, `80s and ’90s  if they are Limited Editions or in mint condition.
