There’s a small selection of craftsmen that I’ve wanted to represent for many years now. Working in this field is quite quirky in a way, as you don’t see many craft stores so it’s fairly niche, but you do tend to find yourself bumping in to similar faces. One that’s been on my radar for 3 or 4 years is Japanese artisan Takeshi Ohmura, who lives and works in Fukuoka, Japan.
You may have seen his work floating around the web, and I’ve always been captivated by his matte glazes in which he applies a base colour on top, usually green, red or blue. So when I was able to work with Takeshi and get a selection in store I was really pleased, especially considering his long waiting list.
So here I 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 just get better with age. Enjoy.
