It’s a potters world.


 Images of various potters & sculptors :


I’ve admired the works of the following ceramicists and sculptors, so it was refreshing to research this post and get to see what they actually looked like. I think images of artists have more impact when you see them in their studio environment.

Bernard Leach

  Bernard Leach

Leach was the so-called father of studio pottery. This was a new idea at the turn of the century when artist-craftsmen mostly worked in factories. A studio potter was one who worked in his own shop on one of a kind pieces. Leach, a Brit who grew up in China, was studying pottery in Japan when he met the renown Japanese ceramicist, Shoji Hamada, an intellectual who was a painter and a potter but who was also a graduate of Kyoto Ceramic Institute, a kind of ceramic engineering school.

 “I like using my hands and working the wheel. Most of the times I’m wearing some of what I’m making. I even like working with fire, although I’m not always comfortable with it because I’m firing at white heat.”

  Taxile Doat  ( 1851-1939 ) was one of the major figures of French ceramics at the turn of the twentieth century.

Between 1877 and 1905, he worked at the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres in France and was among the artists who introduced the Art Nouveau style. He also opened his own workshop/studio and developed new techniques including the technique of grand feu enamel on sandstone . For some of his work away from Sevres he favored the Japanese aesthetic of organic shapes and running glazes. Then, in 1909, he taught at the University of Saint Louis, Missouri and contributed to the expansion of artistic porcelain in the United States.
