Fumiaki Goto: Drawing Vessels


Created by Japanese ceramicist Fumiaki Goto, the Drawing Vessels project combines clay with graphite to produce an object that has a dual function as both a bowl and a drawing implement.

Using a specially developed firing method, the vessels are heated at 1,050ºc, causing the clay and graphite mixture to solidify with the graphite at the bottom of the structure. The project was initiated as a result of the Ceramic Lab founded as part of Japanese design collective Bril.
