Spin Ceramics

Spin Ceramics is a Chinese company founded by Jeremy Kuo and his now deceased US based artistic director Gary Wang. Spin is known for a wide variety of ceramic pieces from chopsticks that range from $11 to beautiful vases that sell for over $3,000. The appeal of Spin ceramics is that they are made with traditional, handmade techniques from Jingdezhen, which is the capital of Chinese porcelain since the Ming Dynasty. My favorite pieces would have to the be the vases with the faces because although they are so simple, something about their simplicity gives it a unique flair that I would not have been able to think of otherwise. Outside of Shanghai, eight young designers conceive sketches for what they want and then in Jingdezhen, master craftsmen oversee the making of the work from the shaping to the clay firing.
