I came across this recent exhibition at Jacksons in Berlin which showcases the works of Danish furniture designer Poul Kjærholm, showing his understanding of construction and craftsmanship.
This week saw the arrival of new work by Yusuke Tazawa, most prominently the Black Walnut Tray, the Thin Dish, but also a different take on the Makiji Bowl that he previously made for the shop.
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.
South Korean ceramic artist Inwha Lee creates these mesmerising porcelain vessels, which have unique abstract sections. The walls are so fine that light can completely pass through them.
A search for interesting craftsmen led me on to Ditte Fischer, a lady who’s been designing and manufacturing everyday pieces of porcelain at her workshop in Copenhagen.
Ruka Kikuchi, also known by his nickname Lue Brass, has produced these new dishes and selection of cutlery for OEN shop. They will slowly patina and change over time.
