Sunshine Cobb – Ceramic Artist

dsc06956

Sunshine Cobb about her work: “I want my work in clay to represent growth and accomplishment, in which I believe reminiscence and nostalgia play a part. I rely on  texture and color to create a sense of motion and time in my work. I hope to instill a sense of age, like one finds apparent in discarded objects, with the aim to infuse feelings of nostalgia and wanderlust in my ceramic objects. By exploring and creating vessels kept within arms reach, I hope to communicate how an object’s significance can grow and change depending on the path of a person’s life. And how the relationship between function and ornament shift throughout the course of a day/week/year. Through form and surface my goal is to communicate a sense of home and memory but also to evoke that feeling of wanderlust that has informed my own life and visual sensibilities.”

Yunomi Series:

This series of Yunomi’s by Sunshine Cobb are thrown and textured with a variety of patterns, which gives each one an individual presence.  These are perfect for any liquid refreshment.   Very versatile little things. They are glazed, fired, then sandblasted to give the exterior of the cup is a soft matte finish.  In addition I hand sand each cup with wet/dry sandpaper to give them a soft and supple feel.

Whiskey Cup Series:

This series of whiskey cups’s are thrown and textured with a variety of patterns, which gives each one an individual presence.  These are perfect for any liquid refreshment.   Very versatile little things. They are glazed, fired, then sandblasted to give the exterior of the cup is a soft matte finish.  In addition I hand sand each cup with wet/dry sandpaper to give them a soft and supple feel.

Mug & Mini Mug Series:

Mugs are one of my favorite objects to make. There is something so simple yet complicated in the mug form. This object is often the most used in peoples lives and the most intimate of objects.  These mugs are about comfort and practicality.   Each one of my mugs is thrown on the wheel, made to resemble a tin can,  every one a bit different from the other, different dents and slightly different size.  I love mugs, how we reach for the same one everyday or we grab one that is for lounging around. Each mug in my cupboard has a special place in my heart, hope mine makes it into your cupboard and life! (Food/Microwave/Dishwasher Safe)
