Utilitarian Ceramic by Ben Fiess
Minnesota-based ceramicist Ben Fiess’s range of stackable ceramic containers proves that lunchtime vessels needn’t be dull. The containers split into four functioning parts and are available in striking custom glazes.
The Utilitarian Ceramic range comprises segmented jars that can be broken apart into strainer, lid, cap and container. Each vessel features two cork plugs on either side, with a contrasting coloured rubber band centred on the body as a form of fastening.
Stylus particularly loves the wares’ endless colour, glaze and surface variations – exemplified through Feiss’s keen interest in ceramic chemistry, his curiosity for materials and his subsequent thorough online clay glaze and body database.
