Slab Teapot Adrian Castelo


Adrian Castelo is a California ceramic artist born and raised in San Diego he is constantly experimenting with new ideas, glazes, and forms. Adrian draws inspiration from the floral forms painted by Georgia O'Keeffe, and by the eccentric pottery of Mississippi master potter George Ohr. His most striking works include hand-moulded vases and teapots constructed with delicate leaf-like elements, wrapped like layers of an onion around a solid body. The clay tapers to a fine edge, thin as a flower petal and sharp as a knife.
