Philadelphia-based ceramicist Brian Giniewski creates rainbow-colored pots and vases that appear to be dunked in sugary-sweet icing. He first started making his dripping vessels on weekends while teaching art at university level. After six years, Giniewski turned his passion into a full-time career when he opened his business—together with his wife Krista—in May 2016.
With a goal to make “one of a kind ceramic pots that make people happy,” Giniewski’s distinctive glazing resembles generous coats of icing. The glossy glazes contrast with a gritty, matte underlayer of earthenware clay in a range of colors. From pastel shades, to marbled, and speckled patterns, each piece comes out of the kiln completely unique, due to the oozing nature of the glaze.
After almost one year operating out of a small studio in Port Richmond, Philadelphia, the pair needed a bigger space to facilitate a higher production rate. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Giniewski was able to move into a converted factory building with better equipment and is now working harder than ever at producing his delightful, drippy designs.
You can see more of Giniewski’s work on Instagram, and purchase his colorful creations via his online shop.
Ceramicist Brian Giniewski produces a range of rainbow-colored vessels that look like they’re glazed with icing.
From plain, pastel-colored glazes…
…to oozing, marbled gloss.
The delightful vessels are food and drink safe, so long as they are hand-washed.
They also make pretty plant pots.
