We used a bit of down time to update our feature on TRUCK Furniture, showcasing photos from our trip to Japan where we visited the workshop, showroom and cafe late last year.
These brass keyring were produced at their workshop in Vienna, Austria. Each of them takes many days to create by a skilled craftsman, from being moulded to being sanded by hand.
A photographer was available to go the studio of talented Japanese potter Makoto Asebi. We showcase how he produces his works from start to finish, such as making on the wheel and later firing in the kiln.
Japanese potter Misa of Mushimegane Books has opened her kiln for the last time this year, so it’s great to receive a new batch of ceramics straight from her studio in Hyogo, Japan.
I’m really pleased to profile the fantastic work of Fujii Works, we sent Japanese photographer Issei Kashiwagi to travel to their studio and take pictures of them crafting their objects by hand.
Yusuke Tazawa is a talented woodworker and lacquer artist. These vessels are quite something, some are makiji lacquered vessels, but we also stock a new blue lacquered tray.
