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.
New works from Misa Kumabuchi, her glazes are made from locally sourced materials, such as sand, rock and other minerals and objects that she finds on trails near her studio.
A fantastic series of photography under The name “Another Land” by Leah Raintree, which is titled after one of Isamu Noguchi’s set of sculptures with the same name.
Talented British potter Norman Yap makes these organic looking vessels which are produced in two separate collections, one being stoneware and the other porcelain.
Beautiful wooden objects by Fujii Works. Kenichi is the woodturner, he also carves the pieces by hand and constructs the vessels. Minako on the other hand applies the finishing touches.
Often you see very generic pictures of craftsmen, which are flat and quite basic, but Andrew Montgomery has been able to take fantastic photographs of makers in his ‘Artisan’ series.
