“From my first time trying to make a pot, I was determined to improve and master the process. Fifteen years later, I'm still working on it!”
A college ceramics and design professor-turned-full-time maker, Brian Giniewski works out of his Philadelphia pottery studio. There, he creates restrained forms featuring fluid, pastel candy-colored glazes. His labor-intensive approach to glazing and firing is part science and part kiln magic. Each piece is handled dozens of times throughout the making process and is fired up to four times to achieve the viscous, drippy effect.
We visited Brian's awesome Philly studio, ate cake, and got a firsthand glimpse at his process. Check out photos and more from our trip on our blog.
