James’s voluptuous nipple pots are inspired by mid-century modernism, Shiva Linghams, and the moon pots of Japanese-Hawaiian sculptor Toshiko Takaezu.
James hand-throws each abstract form. When the shape has been completed he pinches the top and blows into it to accentuate the shape and encourage organic variations. While he’s blowing he slowly seals the form with his lips.
Nipple pots are sleek canvases for James’s lustrous glazes.
