Clay artist Jim Webb, hand builds artistic stoneware ceramic table lamps with mica, or paper shades. He began studying ceramics with Toshiko Takaezu while an undergraduate at Princeton University. After graduating with a degree in art history he traveled extensively, primarily in the Middle East and Afghanistan, where he developed a keen interest in Islamic art and architecture. Upon returning to the U.S. he studied economics at Columbia University where he received a master’s degree. It was while studying at Columbia that Jim rediscovered his love of ceramics. Toshiko Toshiko’s urging he moved to Lambertville, New Jersey, and became a member of the Clay Co-op group. In 1978 he opened his own studio, which is today Studio 233.
Jim’s interest in lighting was born of a desire to combine clay’s sculptural and functional potential. Each piece gives him the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind statement with the use of glazes and metallic oxides. His hand built slab lamps are incised with a variety of carved motives that render each one a unique piece of art.
In 2001 Barbara Webb began working with her husband creating the shades for his lamp bases. She uses handmade paper from around the world.
