Round Vessel #22


Renowned sustainable artist Mitch Iburg has meticulously crafted a durable vessel featuring a rounded shape accentuated by a sleek straight lip. The captivating richness of its patina emerges from meticulously layered kaolinitic and iron-rich clay, resulting in remarkable depth and texture. Atrio proudly presents a curated collection showcasing Iburg's unparalleled geologic artistry. For enhanced functionality, the artist recommends placing a glass inside each vessel. Due to the clay's composition, sourced from natural deposits, it may contain excess sand, rendering it not fully waterproof.

The Brand

Mitch Iburg’s studio practice is influenced by the earth’s geological record - specifically, as a manifestation of its ability to remember, rewrite, and inevitably forget the history through which it was formed. Translating this concept into his work by using foraged clays, stones, fossils, and glacial debris as tools for re-framing the volcanic eruptions, ancient seas, and ice sheets that have shaped the landscapes around him. Researching the diversity of Minnesota’s geological past has inspired a way of making that both embraces and challenges conventional ceramic traditions. In an effort to promote various materials along a spectrum of art forms, Mitch’s work frequently shifts between vessel, sculpture, and two-dimensional formats. Each body of work conveys a unique dialect within the larger language of geological history. Collectively, he views each series as a specific resolution to the tension between artistic intent, ceramic tradition, and the intrinsic properties of natural materials.
