MUJI recently hosted an exhibition featuring Japanese craftsmen at the Fifth Avenue Flagship Store named “Tatazumai”, which can be translated as “shape” or “atmosphere”.
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.
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.
Keiichi Tanaka is a popular potter with quite a following. We’re happy to have restocked a selection of work, but have also added the blue wide bowl to our collection, which is fired with pigment.
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.
