Adrian Gonzalez at

AVA GALLERY

London based designer and potter Adrian Gonzalez creates geometric vessels and tableware that are both functional and aesthetic. Drawing inspiration from nature and in particular his love of the coastline and rock pools, Adrian’s creations are reminiscent of volcanic rock found at the ocean’s edge. Yet inside each lies a smooth and tranquil glossy surface bringing to mind sea water.

 

Adrian achieves these effects using his unique silicon carbide slip and glaze combination. Each piece is hand thrown and individually painted with layers of slip and oxides. They are then fired in a particular spot within the kiln to achieve the desired bubbling. The simplicity and tactile texture of each piece displays the craftsmanship involved in making them.
