Bowl by Gwyneth Paltrow

Not only has the talented Gwyneth Paltrow won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards, she is also evidently quite good at making ceramics! Who knew? Ms. Paltrow made this rather lovely little bowl 24 years ago when she was just a teenager, demonstrating above all a fine command of glazing technique. Her choice and application of colors, and her restraint in leaving the foot of the vessel unglazed, suggest an uncommon level of exactitude and patience (most kids are somewhat lacking in these last two qualities, and that is why glazing is the aspect of pottery-making which young people don’t generally excel in).

Boxes of glaze tests by Adam Silverman. “I decided I wanted to develop a whole new body of glazes because I’d been doing a version of the same thing for what felt like many years,” says Silverman. “The palette was inspired by the images of bullfighting hanging above it. The idea was, how do you convey that violent imagery and its weird beauty and savagery, all in a glaze on a pot? And of course all without then telling people that’s what you’re going for. So we made these glazes with super-aggressive crackle and textures. We did probably 200 tests to narrow it down to about five.”

There’s a simple connection between architecture and clothing and pottery. They’re all for the human body. They’re all functional. They can all be elevated to art. Cite Arrow Adam Silverman
