Master Of His Craft

Moon Jar: Adam Buick

I know that I just recently posted a video on Adam Buick’s work but couldn’t help myself – I had to share this one too. It’s so beautifully done and the content is incredibly inspiring and impressive. This guy is a true master of his craft. Hope you enjoy!

Moon Jar – Adam Buick from Adam Buick on Vimeo.

The shapes I throw are based on Moon Jars, a Korean form from the Choson Dynasty originally made from plain white porcelain. I was struck by their serenity and simplicity. I decided to use this pure jar form as the canvas for my work, incorporate selected sources of local materials such as clays, rocks and seaweeds. I am inspired to do this through a fascination with landscape and how the resources within it can be utilised.

The film is made by Adam’s brother Greg Rodland Buick who is a documentary photographer and film maker.
