Clay Canoe

Wyan McAllister and Kyle Roddenby are the designers and makers behind the Australian ceramic studio, Clay Canoe.  Their backyard kiln has produced platters, plates, condiment dishes, bowls and spoons.  Ceramic vases and contemporary pottery sculptures are the newest additions to their line. There is a definite Japanese aesthetic influence particularly in their Nogochi series. 

The artisans can be followed on their website, Facebook and Instagram.

Anna Whitehouse

On January 1, 2018 ceramist Anna Whitehouse began project to make one bottle a day for 100 days. The UK-based artist limited herself to a single form but the designs she created on the surface differed each day.  After completing the project she created a “clay calendar” showing each bottle she made along with their titles.  On Craft Centre Leeds she writes this about the project:  

”The aim was to free up my making and explore ideas quickly.  Recording the process on Instagram and naming each after something that I did that day, helped remind me that these were not supposed to be finished pieces.  It allowed me to take risks, because there was always going to be another one tomorrow!”

Aleksandra Onipko

Don’t know very much about Moscow-based artist, Aleksandra Onipko, except that she is an architect and a freelance illustrator.  Ceramics has been her hobby for the last few years.  We liked them very much so we decided to post her work.

You can view all of her projects on Behance, Facebook and Instagram.
