Admiring the Work of Toshiko Takaezu

Admiring the Work of Toshiko Takaezu

I thought I’d take an alternative approach to creating some content today, bringing across one creative from the past that I’ve been researching into recently who happens to be incredibly inspiring. Having worked with clay and ceramics for over six decades Toshiko Takaezu unfortunately passed away in March of this year.

Set of Imagery from Tim Barber

Browsing through Tim’s page the set that caught my eye was a collection of portraits featuring creative people based in New York. It was a logical choice given the faces that crept up within in it. Those astute menswear fans amongst us will recognise Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony alongside Sam Buffa of Freemans Sporting Club, see if you can spot their faces above and below.

She runs two fantastic websites, one more of a blog format and the other showcasing her …

Created in aid of Movember, this year the Urchin Associates have visited various creative types with their film crew for a diverse range of storytelling experiences. In this episode we get to hear the story of a passionate …
