Medium Orange Rust Handmade California Ceramic, Interior Sculpture Wabi Sabi

$1,200per item

About

Joseph Skoby is a Southern Californian whose work is inspired by the nature of his native state. His ceramics, created in his own lush garden, recall his intimate dance with the ocean as a lifelong surfer, a pure form of self-expression that disappears after each wave. Each vessel is hand thrown and crafted in his studio in La Jolla California. No piece is alike. His work finds inspiration in the traditional Japanese ceramics craft, combined with the freedom of diving into the contemporary. The pieces embody an aesthetic principle where imperfections become the birthplace of unique beauty. Textured with hand carved patterns or smooth to the surface, Skoby’s ceramics abandon their functional purpose as vase and become a sculptural element end in itself. Glazes are combined with an excellent balance of tasteful varietal palette of colors often overlapped, layered, dipped, brushed or poured. Simple yet profound, Skoby’s work looks beautiful paired in groups, forming a harmonious relationship mirroring that of his own with nature.
