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.
