Jason’s vessel series created for Cultivate deploy movement and gesture.  His process of slip casting is labour-intensive. It begins with a model created by hand from which a multiple part mould is cast in plaster. Dry plaster acts like a sponge and absorbs water, so as liquid clay (slip) is poured into the mould a shell forms that becomes the finished work. The unique patterned surface is made with an initial application of coloured slip inside the mould.  To finish, the interior is glazed and the exterior is left unglazed and sanded smooth.  Each vessel will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size and weight. Photo Gallery: Includes objects, artist(s) at work, mentor leadership and studio space/setting. Exhibit: In partnership with the Yorkville Royal Sonesta Hotel this piece is currently displayed in a showcase on the 8th floor. 

Care & Use: The interiors are glazed making it water safe to contain water and are to be washed by hand. The exteriors are unglazed therefore keep away from oil.

About The Artist

Jason Schiedel: Region of Plenty

Jason Schiedel is originally from Waterloo, Ontario, and currently lives on the shores of Lake Huron in the rural town of Port Elgin. He studied Fine Art, earning an undergraduate degree in Sculpture/Installation from the Ontario College of Art and Design, and an MFA in Sculpture from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Jason worked in a wide variety of media before centring his practice around clay, where he discovered a material rich for exploring the subjects of intimacy, relationships, and connection. His approach to ceramics is largely self-taught, enhanced by workshops on mould making and design with Angelo di Petta and Peter Pincus. Jason founded Region of Plenty as an artisanal ceramic design brand in 2020. Drawing upon a love of art history, forms found in nature, and the body in motion, Region of Plenty is home to functional ceramic sculpture that brings individuals together in contemplation and feeling.
