Relic Icosahedron, Geometric White Porcelain Ceramic Small Sculptural Object

$240per item

About

This sculptural geometric icosahedron is handcrafted from slabs of unglazed white porcelain with highly individual black oxide burnout detailing, giving each of its 20 sides a unique textural matte finish. The organic texture contrasts with the clean geometric lines; it feels both ancient and entirely modern. Perfect as an eye-catching paperweight or just a decorative objet.

About the Maker

John Sheppard

John Sheppard is a New York City-based ceramic artist whose work is characterized by clean geometric shapes inspired by a range of influences, including nature, Brutalism, Richard Serra, Art Deco, and outer space. He forms and finishes each object by hand, ensuring layers of depth and texture, and often embracing irregularities rather than disguising them. The end result is a collection that feels of-the-moment, yet timeless.
