A large porcelain bottle designed in the Mingei, or folk art style of Japanese ceramics
The large bottle can be used for wine, water or any drink. Individually built, glazed, fired and signed by the artist, no two pieces of Wilcoxson Brooklyn Ceramics are exactly alike.
Mingei is a Japanese folk art movement developed in the late 1920s and 1930s. Its founding father was Yanagi Soetsu, known for discovering and appreciating the beauty in everyday objects made by unknown craftsmen. This handmade bottle is delicate and practical at the same time. Made from Wilcoxson Brooklyn’s porcelain recipe, the material is carefully molded then rolled into a cylinder, with a signature overlapping edge and subtle indentation. This clean white bottle is also a quiet piece of sculpture.
Kevin Wilcoxson, artist and founder of Wilcoxson Brooklyn Ceramics in Brooklyn, New York, Is inspired by the simple utilitarianism of Mingei, or folk art style of Japanese ceramics. He designed his own porcelain molding process to bring together age-old materials with modern forms and functions. Each handmade, individually signed piece has a signature overlapping edge. Food-safe, oven-safe and dishwasher-safe, this practical porcelain tableware can be used daily. No toxic chemicals or dyes are used in his process.
