Traditional Japanese aesthetics, WABI-SABI collection takes inspiration from the beauty of imperfection, impermanent and incomplete. The characteristic of this collection are asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, and intimacy. Made in a range of natural colours with different shapes and functions.
This wedding season we are seeing a trend in our clients wanting natural Eathernware crockery. One of our favourite brands is @nomliving, a family business who create stunning handcrafted and sustainable crockery. They work directly with artisans in the South East to preserve traditional methods of production and the results are simply stunning. #crush
An ever so slightly newer leaf bowl... I have quite enjoyed making these, I am particularly fond of how the glazes layered on this piece, though the form stoops quite low due to the position of the footring (certainly not helped by the heat of the kiln either). In terms of practicality, these certainly are not that. Perhaps for jewelry or a set of keys or two, but likely no more. Does this decrease their value? Would they sell?
I suppose it doesn't matter too much at the moment, after all I haven't started studying yet, but it is something I have started to think about more recently.
