Los Angeles, CA, USA
Inspired by nuances of the modern and natural world, Los Angeles-based potter Philip Kupferschmidt constantly explores unique approaches to decorative and functional ceramic sculpture. Minimal silhouettes paired with abstract glazes and natural surface treatments result in striking, yet familiar objects.
In Philip’s open-air studio, raw clay is hand-wedged and formed. Aired clay is thrown on his kick wheel and meticulously shaped to perfection. After the pieces are bisqued, fired, treated, and dipped in a chosen glaze, he adds the finishing touches with a thoughtful eye before their last firing.
