The Mini Moon Jar Collection is a series of petite ceramic round vessels featuring sculpted images of male figures on a textured surface by artist Gianfranco Briceño. Each vase is made from hand and is entirely unique.

"I've been fascinated with Moon Jars - I think they're a classic format for every potter. But I wanted to give them a special touch, so I brought to them the texture that I create with porcelain and chamotte (or grog) from various types of clay. I came to the conclusion that I don't like to create smooth and perfect pieces. I love the imperfection of the textures that the clay gives me or the stains that the oxides and enamels create after I take them out of the kiln.

With my ceramic work, I visualize each piece as a photograph. In my mind there is no possibility of creating a ceramic piece without seeing a human figure telling me something. The boys and scenes I draw in my ceramics always have an air of eroticism, seduction, mystery, pose, or contemplation." - Gianfranco Briceño

Briceño is a Peruvian ceramicist, sculptor, painter, and photographer based in São Paulo, Brazil. He uses themes of masculinity and sexuality in his photography, ceramics, painting, and sculpture.

Each jar comes in a box signed by the artist.
