This grouping named ‘Kashiwan’, which means oak bowl in Japanese, is a fantastic series by Kihachi Workshop. They’re hand turned at their workshop in the Yamanaka region.
We had some beautiful sunshine this week, so it seemed about time I updated some of the photographs of the objects made by husband and wife team Fujii Works in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan.
A new addition to the feature section is a piece on Japanese woodworker and craftsman Hiroyuki Sugawara, who creates out of his studio in Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture.
Although in some cases Shinobu Hashimoto’s work is very understated, using black slips with gold tones shining through, he also makes pieces that are bold and striking.
Talented artist Miya Ando creates canvases using subtle shades of colour that feature a gradient, flowing from top to bottom, all of which are based on themes of perception and time.
Japanese maker Hiroyuki Sugawara has crafted this special wooden bowl for us here at OEN, which has been hand turned on his lathe at his studio in Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture.
