Permanent Collection





This footed stoneware bowl was designed exclusively for Permanent Collection by celebrated London-based designer Max Lamb. Inspired by works made during Lamb’s time at the JB Blunk Residency in Inverness, CA in 2009, these related, but subtly different, vessels reflect his exposure to the inventive ceramics of artist JB Blunk—pieces that intentionally skated the fine line between ‘function’ and ‘art.’

Each piece was hand-thrown by master potters at the legendary Leach Pottery, one of the most historically significant potteries in the world, located in Lamb’s native Cornwall, U.K.

Use this beautiful footed bowl as a storage vessel to hold your most precious small belongings, sip a matcha latte or coffee from its generous cup, or place it on display. Though intended to be multi-functional, this piece is equally at home on a mantle as it is on the dining table. If using for floral arranging, consider buying a ceramic or metal 'frog' at a hardware store or online.

*PLEASE NOTE: the footed bowl is sold individually, but can be also purchased as part of the full trio.

Permanent Collection’s collaboration with celebrated London-based designer, Max Lamb (b.1980), has yielded three ceramics inspired by works made during Lamb’s time at the JB Blunk Residency in Inverness, CA in 2009. Max designed these related, but subtly different, vessels following his exposure to the ceramics of artist JB Blunk (1926–2002). Before 2009, Lamb had never worked with clay, but he started by tracing the arc of Blunk’s own practice, begun in the Japanese pottery region of Bizen, Japan in 1953. When Blunk returned to California, he dug clay from the nearby hills of Nicasio—Lamb did the same, firing his works in Blunk’s kiln.

For these new pieces, Lamb used his earlier ceramics as templates, but asked Roelof Uys, studio head at the historic Leach Pottery—located in Lamb’s native Cornwall, U.K.—to execute the designs. Bernard Leach (1887–1979) founded his influential pottery in 1920 with Japanese ceramicist Shoji Hamada (1894–1978), fusing the aesthetics and manufacturing methods of East & West—a meeting of influences that was likewise a feature of Blunk’s work and, by extension, of Lamb’s.
