Ben Fiess

American ceramicist Ben Fiess creates some of the most beautiful jars I’ve seen. Made with a four-part construction that uses two cork plugs and a contrasting rubber band to close the jar, they are about 4.5 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide.

They come in a range of creamy colours and pastel shades with flecks, specks and pretty imperfections produced by iron oxides and carbonates.

Whilst at Indiana University, Ben developed his idiosyncratic from of ‘ceramic chemistry’ – and has a broader curiosity of many materials and the perception of them, constantly experimenting with different ones in his ceramics.

He currently lives in Minnesota. When he’s not in the studio he enjoys baking cakes (good lad!) riding his various bicycles and maintaining his 1980 Honda 500CX. ben-fiess-3ben-fiess-2
