Adam Silverman’s New Pots


Hand thrown with explosive, experimental glazes, Adam Silverman’s newest collection perfectly epitomizes the ceramist’s ancient-meets-modern aesthetic. The current studio director of Heath Ceramics unveils his new body of work after an eventful fall season.

Commissioned for separate projects by both the Santa Monica Museum of Art and LACMA, Silverman has been hard at work over the last couple months designing the installation for the retrospective of iconic Ojai ceramicist Beatrice Wood; creating a limited edition, commemorative vessel in celebration of the Pacific Standard Time exhibition; all while putting the finishing touches on the new, experimental collection. Traditional, personal and improvisational techniques, were employed while crafting the vessel’s modernist inspired silhouettes. 


These works will be on view December 1st, 2011 when Cabana Home – in collaboration with Edward Cella Art + Architecture – hosts the potter’s solo exhibit in Santa Barbara.

“New Pots” is part of an ongoing sequence of exhibitions organized by Edward Cella Art & Architecture and Cabana Home. An artist talk with Silverman will take place just before the opening reception (free and open to the public) on November 30th from 6:30-8:30 pm at Cabana Home.

Silverman’s pottery pieces will be on display Monday-Saturday, 10 am – 6 pm through January 14th, 2012 at Cabana Home.
