Faceted Bottle in Cream I

Adam Ross
Faceted Bottle in Cream I by London-based ceramicist Adam Ross. Part of a series of cleaved, altered pieces specially developed by Adam, this hand-made vase is inspired by both Japanese and British studio ceramics, pioneered by Leach Pottery of St Ives in Cornwall. Each item in the collection explores the art of sculptural form and this particular piece is lightly glazed so that the beautiful toasted-colour stoneware clay is visible underneath. Faceted Bottle in Cream is watertight and perfect for displaying a single flower.

Adam Ross typically works from a potter’s wheel, throwing thick cylindrical forms before slicing the clay to create a multi-faceted surface, and applying glaze to transform the material into something unpredictable and unique. For this piece, Adam uses a combination of black and toasted stoneware clays, finishing with his own hand-mixed cream glaze.
