Koji shiraya crafts simple porcelain boxes with a difference: they have oozing, overflowing lids making the container appear alive with white gelatinous liquid. more
THE INTERESTING PART IS HOW THE DESIGNER HAS TRIED TO GIVE A CHARACTER TRATE TO THE LID.AS THE SUBSTANCES OOZE OUT OF THE CONTAINER.HE HAS MADE THE LID ONLY OOZING OUT. DECISION TO MAKE IT ALL WHITE BRINGS OUT THE STORY VERY SUBLTY RATHER THAN BANGING THE CONCEPT RIGHT ON YOUR FACE.WHICH I SOMETIMES DO. SO ALSO REMINDING MYSELF NOT TO BE THAT STRAIGHT AND KEEPING IT HIDDEN YET REVEALING.
Vincent Van Duysen's ceramic
Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen's collection of Pottery epitomises his spare aesthetic, use of natural materials and subtle colour. Powerful though each piece is in isolation, the collection is conceived as an entity: an evocation of the shelves of stacked vessels in a potter's studio. Read as a series, the differences of scale and colour create powerful rhythms and modulations expressed in the subtle but intense palette of a northern European sky.
Each piece is composed of two elements: an earthenware container and a wooden plate. Whilst the angle of the curve and the smooth profile of each pot are fixed, the diameter and the height of the vessels vary. These shifts in scale determining whether the container framed is a bowl or a platter. The thickness of the wooden plate which serves as both cover and plinth is also variable.
THIS IS ONE PRODUCT THAT I LIKE THE MOST DUE TO IS EARTHEN YET MORDEN APPEARANCE AND FEEL. SECONDLY DUE TO THE SPECIFIC SET OF NEUTRAL COLOURS THAT HAVE BEEN USED.I FEEL THAT MY PRODUCT TO AN EXTEN HAS AN HIDDEN CORRELATION OF SIMILARITY TO THE PRODUCT.
4 small spice bottles with impressed text. impressed " fennel, cumin, dill, mustard seed ". this small corked bottle set is made of off white stoneware clay and glazed with shades of grey glazes. natural cork stopper. marked on the underside with the symbol impression.
these are handmade and do not have industrial perfection. small imperfections are all a part of these handmade pieces. these glazes are food safe and lead free. as with all handmade ceramics, I do not recommend putting them in the microwave, oven or dishwasher (unless on the delicate cycle). they are handmade of very limited quantity, so please use them with care. avoid contact with staining foods on unglazed exterior surfaces

ITS A SIMPLE CERAMIC PEICE ADDING ON TO A LOT OF FUNCTIONALITY. I LIKE THE PART WHERE ITS ACTING AS A CUMBERSOME PRODUCT MULTYTASKING AND FILLING THE REQUIREMENT. PRODUCT DESIGN IS NOTHING WITH OUT ITS FUNCTION AND THIS ONE IS AN EXCELLENT SHOW TO THE FUNCTION.

Teapot with flat lid
"After graduating from the Arts & Sciences and Ceramics program at Tajimi Technical High school, Takeshi Omura studied under well known potter, Keisuke Iwata. In 2007, after severals years of producing his work at "Studio MAVO" in Tajimi, Omura returned to Fukuoka where he set up his own kiln.
Omura's ceramics are characterized by their thin, almost metal like quality and unique coloration"
I LIKE THE MATT FINISH AND THE METAL LIKE FEEL. EVEN USING CERAMIC WHICH IS GENERALLY TAKEN TO BE ORGANIC IS GIVING A METALLIC FEEL. IT IS IRONICAL YET INTERESTING I ALSO LIKE THE HOLES TO FILTER THE TEA THAT ARE INCLUDED IN THE PRODUCT.
"VASES generates the associations of machinery and industrial architecture. The use of straight lines, shapes and sharp edges creates an industrial profile. This aesthetic renders them difficult to produce, testing the material clay to its limits. VASES is to act in the antagonism between industry design and handcraft production and to visualize a new synthesis: handcraft produced industrial forms and objects"
I WAS FACINATED HOW GEOMETARY IS USED ASTHE BASIC BASIC SPACE ELEMENT OF THE DESIGN.THE STRAIGHT LINES USED CONVEY THE BOLD AND STRONG LOOK.ALL OF THEM HAVE A CIRCULAR TOP AND A CIRCULAR BOTTOM.
Container with wood and leather
Our popular oak-lidded container is outfitted with a nifty leather tab and comes in our cool, calm, and collected seasonal color Storm. Perfect for the kitchen, tabletop, or bath, it's as much an object to be adored as a storage vessel.

ceramic cellers in mint -sallt,pepper,sugar by ross lab
Squared and irregular, these hand built vessels are modern and simple. They are glazed in a transparent mint hue that runs nicely in the words "sugar", "pepper", and "salt" I stamped on the outside. They were fired in the kiln twice, like all my pieces, to ensure durability.The bottoms of these geometric containers are left unglazed and natural: they are nice to the touch and won't move around you table. three vessels together with three durable bamboo spoons
THE BAMBOO SPOON ALONG WITH CERAMIC,COMES OUT TO BE A GOOD COMBINATION AS THE NATURAL MATERIAL COMPLIMENTS THE EARTHEN WEAR.
Salt and pepper have to be on the table; together. The salt and pepper mills Doublefacette complement one another both in a functional and in a formal way.
Inspired by an outline, the forms, as the contents, are complementary. The inverted forms and the interplay of the materials lend attention to an object of utility an extraordinary haptic experience. Design reflects the use. According to the parsimonious way of using salt, the diameter of the salt mill is small. The pepper mill instead spins you twice.
Billy Lloyd stacking mugs
"Stoneware clay collared cremation urn with custom quote and custom colour options. Custom made just for you to hold pet ashes or use instead to hold special pet memorial mementos like a pet collar. Glazed only at top above the top line of text. Hand impressed lettering writing a quote of your selection on the front side and spelling the name of your pet on back side. A date or dates can be added under the name if you would like. Cork will be custom fitted to opening, but please secure urn cork stopper with glue (such as gorilla glue, or super glue)."
JUST LIKE THE WAY TEA AND COFFE AND SUGAR ARE WRITTEN ON THE STORING BOXES THE SPICE THAT IS KEPT INSIDE CAN ALSO BE NOTIFIED.AFTER GRINDING ALL SPICES LOOK ALMOST SIMILAR AND THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO SIGNIFY AND IDENTIFY THEM IF POUR IN PROPERLY.
The collection, called Pots, was created by Benjamin Hubert and Menu using the contrast between traditional terracotta and industrially produced rubber lids.Each pot has a natural exterior and a glazed interior, while the lids are injection-moulded silicone.The collection comprises a tall and top-heavy pot for spaghetti, a container with a wide spout for dispensing pasta or grain, a small pot with a long neck for controlled pouring, and a wide cookie jar that rotates on its angled base for easy sharing.
TO ME THEY APPER AS BUILDINGS OR THE TOWERS BY THE SEA OR THAT ARE PRESENT IN THE SEA WITH THE GUIDING LIGHT.
PHASE DESIGN GRIFFIN STOOL
"PHASE DESIGN GRIFFIN STOOL / SIDE TABLE. This versatile piece works interchangeably as a side-table or stool. Made from a hand-sanded fiberglass shell and finished with a high-end automotive polyurethane gloss finish, it is lightweight and durable. The 1.5” solid lumber top tempers the clean architectural form with its warm organic presence. The wooden lid can be sourced on either side at time of order. Indoor use only".
I LIKE THE INTERCHANGEABLE PART AS IT MAKES IT SO MUCH MORE FUNCTIONAL AND USABLE.
"Designed by Kaj Franck, this cruet for Arabia of Finland is one of Franck's more subdued designs. A member of Arabia's Kilta line, this creamer is undeniably elegant, with a warm brown cork resting upon the pristinely clean white ceramic. With an incredibly modern, but rustic, touch, this smart little pitcher is in phenomenal condition, with just the slightest bit of yellowing on the lower back of the piece as well as on the spout. The pitcher measures 5" tall and 2.75" at the base; it also bears an earlier Arabia mark. Sure to become a centerpiece in your collection, this classic design is one of Arabia of Finland's finest, and promises to bring its indelible sense of style to any space".
LOOKING AT THIS DESIGN I THOUGHT AN IMAGINED ALL THE OBJECTS MADE WITH GLASS TO BE REPLACED AS BY CERAMIC AS A MATERIAL AND IT VERY WELL FITS IN THE PURPOSE.JUDT THE TRANSPARENCY BIT CANT BE JUSTIFIED OTHER THE MATERIAL WOULD WORK THE SAME.

This hand-thrown terracotta vessel is notably slim and show a real lightness of touch.
