We featured Eiji Hagiwara on the website last year and since then we’ve had strong interest in his work, luckily for us he has since gone on to craft some more special works that are now in the shop.
Studio Prepa has been making a small selection of glassware for us for a number of years now and this week we received a new shipment from Nagano Prefecture, Japan.
In our last shipment from Fujii Works we tested the waters in regards to stocking their new tea containers, but thanks to their popularity we asked Kenichi and Minako Fujii if could make some more.
Shinobu Hashimoto, a Japanese potter based in Sapporo, Hokkaido has recently sent a new shipment of ceramics for us to stock in the shop, a selection of vases, cups and teapots.
Toru Sugimura, a new Japanese maker who we are now stocking at OEN shop, makes tableware, accessories and furniture at his studio called Knot Wood Works in Ryugasaki, Ibaraki Prefecture.
When I was introduced to the work of metalworker Takeo Suhara I was instantly hooked, the simplicity in his work is contrasted by the small markings that run across the surface of the pieces.
