Each ceramic form is hand thrown by Aaron in his Brooklyn, New York studio. The forms are reminiscent of ancient functional pottery with a contemporary flair. Each form is unique and will have variations in color and texture.

Production and Design

After being thrown each ceramic piece is taken to Leverett, Massachusetts, where it is pit fired in the woods. Pit firing the oldest known method for the firing of pottery. Examples have been dated as early as 29,000–25,000 BCE. Unfired pots are nestled together in a pit in the ground and are then covered with combustible materials such as wood shavings, leaves, metal oxidessalts, sawdust and dried manure. The top of the pit may be protected with moist clay, shards or larger pieces of wood. The filled pit is then set on fire and carefully tended until most of the inner fuel has been consumed.

The ceramic forms are designed to be used as functional pots for plants and flowers similar to a terracotta planter. Each piece is slightly different in its form and fired appearance. 

Materials: Stoneware clay, wood ash and salts

Size: 8” x 8”
