March's Artist Feature

Jason Silverman

Based in Philadelphia, PA

"I took my first pottery class when I was 19," Jason tells us. "I always wanted to try it. As soon as I was halfway into my first attempt at throwing on the wheel, I was hooked. I remember thinking: 'This is it.' From that moment on, I had no choice; I was going to be a potter."

Starting with the bowl, Jason has made this most universal and fundamental form into an object of art which pleases the eye as well as the hand. And he does it in a way which has become more identifying than his signature: with his omnipresent "swirl" design. During the firing, the mineral elements in the glaze are touched by the kiln flame as they melt and flow over each other, creating many thin layers of glass. 

 

This "high fire" process produces a range of subtly different effects which makes each piece unique, from common bowl to decorative vase. With this process and his vision, Jason has created beautiful, durable pottery which is dishwasher safe and microwave safe.
