It’s been a busy year, combining my own creative work with running the shop and website. Here’s a discount code that can be used in the shop, thanking you for all your support over the years.
A short post to introduce our newest feature on Japanese woodworker Eiji Hagiwara. Born in Tokyo, Eiji Hagiwara now works out of his studio in Sayama, Saitama Prefecture.
This new selection of lacquer vessels and plates by Japanese woodworker Maiko Okuno at OEN shop have real charm and character. Something that you often only see in Japanese lacquerware.
Here we present some ceramics from Takeshi Ohmura, which are now available to buy in the shop. These are the kind of works that you use on a daily basis and get better with age. Enjoy.
Every so often you acquire those quaint objects that seem to have a real presence about them, for me the little round brass cup by Austrian metal workshop Carl Aubock is one of them.
We collaborated with talented photographer Wataru Murakami, who has quite an eye for capturing craftsmen at work, to photograph OEN makers Yuichiro and Satoko Suzuki.
