Hand-washing is recommended for crackle vessels. It is not recommended to use crackle vessels to contain wet foodstuffs. Crackle glaze is susceptible to stains from vivid pigmentations. Crafted ceramic vessels are typically seep/leakproof but there are no guarantees, minor flaws can lead to pinhole cracks and fissures. Mishandling or accidental damage can also cause leaks, particularly with celadon/crackle glazes so it is advised that all vessels be placed on a moisture barrier to protect precious surfaces.
Designed and produced from a modest boat-shed atelier and basement studios, Gidon Bing Ceramics are sold and collected worldwide. New York, LA, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, Paris, Copenhagen and have featured in Selfridges of London and Milan's Salone del Mobile among others. The latest collection draws inspiration from the power and presence of reductive forms – a natural extension of Gidon’s sculptural practice, where a fascination with the relationship between biological asymmetry and the artifact is explored.
Many of these ceramic objects are modelled and formed using techniques such as traditional Japanese wood bending, carving, plaster turning and mould making together with more contemporary approaches such as 3d printing and multi-axis CNC. These processes form part of Gidon’s unique sculptural approach to designing and producing ceramics.
