Current Work

Current Work

All of jonís work is individual; hand crafted, thrown on the wheel, and each piece in itself totally unique. Although each piece is a vessel it is not meant to perform a function, but is a piece of art created to evoke a sense of preciousness, grandeur and flamboyance.

His designs have many influences from classical ceramics and Greek vases, to chess pieces to various types of armour. Using these influences he has created modern forms that are machined, mechanical and precision engineered.
