Ashmolean Museum Oxford

Blue Moon Jar

by Emma Baldwin


This striking blue ceramic moon jar is functional and sculptural, with a minimal Japanese inspired aesthetic.

This range of one of a kind ceramic pieces has been created by local artist and teacher Emma Baldwin. Especially made to accompany the Colour Revolution: Victorian Art, Fashion & Design exhibition at the Ashmolean, the pieces have been inspired by the vivid colours of the artwork Study of a Kingfisher, a watercolour by John Ruskin.

All pieces in this range are handmade, meaning each piece is a uniquely individual and may vary slightly in colour and shape.

East Oxford based Baldwin has been working with clay from the age of 14, and is the 2023 winner of a special competition by the Ashmolean & Handmade in Britain.

‘My inspiration comes from many sources and is realised through the process of combining hand built and wheel thrown forms.’

Materials: Clay

Dimensions: 9.5 x 7.5cm
