What we make today bears minimal or no personal touch at all. I mean, the majority of stuff we can find around us, at home or in public places, is somewhat cookie-cutter objects. Here they come pottery and ceramic compositions, that are still made with hands and sometimes even on a wheel.
Artists can literally leave their own signatures on the ceramic pieces; and here it comes a captivating yet struggling concept: “perfectly imperfect”. The more imperfect one clay creation is, the more it has personality. In ceramic pieces, you won’t find a “standard” and cookie-cutter shape. Each one is a unique piece, different from the others. One won’t ever get two identical pieces.
Did we pique your curiosity? Then let’s dive into the romantic and charming old-fashioned atmosphere of clay and ceramic art. Here is our selection of artists that you really should take a look at.
