By My Hands: A Potter's Apprenticeship by Florian Gadsby

By My Hands: A Potter's Apprenticeship by Florian Gadsby

Florian Gadsby has devoted his life to pottery, refining his technique towards the point of perfection–and as his skill has grown, he has shared his work online, inspiring millions with his meditative videos of gorgeous pottery. Based at a studio in North London, he releases three new collections per year, characterized by simple forms and sharp edges, which sell out in a matter of minutes.

In By My Hands, Florian tells the story of his artistic awakening, his education in England, Ireland and Japan, and the sheer discipline which has led him to become the cultural sensation he is today. Arguing for the value in dedicating yourself to a craft, Florian weaves anecdotes about particular pots and processes into the narrative of his life. He explores what he has learned from specific pieces he was taught to create during his apprenticeships–including yunomi, a Japanese teacup, in Mashiko, Japan–and how they have informed his philosophy and approach to his work.

By My Hands is a thoughtful, visual celebration of the simple things, such as a hand-thrown mug or bowl, that add meaning to our lives, as well as an inspiring testament to the power of perseverance.
