Wide Rim Vessel #10


Mitch Iburg's Wide Rim Vessel, meticulously crafted in Minnesota, serves as a testament to the region's rich geological heritage. Fashioned from a blend of kaolinitic and glacial clays, formed over millions of years through the fusion of ancient glacial and oceanic deposits with volcanic ash, this vessel embodies timeless beauty and artistry. An homage to creative tradition and natural materials, Atrio offers a curated selection of Iburg’s sustainable artistry. For optimum functionality, the artist recommends placing a glass inside each vessel. The foraged clay can contains excess sand, making it not entirely 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.
