A stunning ceramic bowl by British studio ceramicist Ray Silverman.

It is hand thrown and features an oatmeal glaze and accentuated rim.

Silverman studied under Lucie Rie and Hans Coper whose influences can be seen within his work. This piece has a beautiful silhouette and texture — delicate in form and tone, a nod to Rie’s influence and its accentuated flat rim reminiscent of Coper’s work.

Silverman’s work was exhibited alongside Rie, Coper and Edmund De Waal among other celebrated ceramicists at the Jewish Museum, the show titled ‘Shaping Ceramics’.

Silverman came to study with Rie and Coper by accident when he was a twelve-year-old boy at the Camberwell School. He speaks about the integrity of his teachers and their high standards, “even today if I finish a piece…I immediately think, what would Lucie say?” (Shaping Ceramics: The Creative Force of Postwar Refugees in England, by Frances Brent)

A film of the makers in their studios was produced for the exhibition, which makes for meditative watching, found here.

This piece is in excellent vintage condition. Artist’s initials stamped to the base.
