This week we received a fresh new shipment from Hornvarefabrikken at OEN shop, so I thought I would present a few new objects here which include some chopsticks and spoons.
Christophe Gordon-Brown, a British artist based in Cambridge, makes beautiful sculptures from stone, and what's great about them is that he's able to let the material speak for itself.
Yeong Tak Han makes vessels that are aesthetically quite sparse, using white as a base for many of his pieces, but the shapes themselves are often flavoured with a traditional Korean sensibility.
Alison's metalwork draws inspiration from the clean lines of geometric shapes, paired against soft satin finishes. They are hand crafted at her workshop in Canberra named Pocket Studio.
Vitreluxe Glass Works was founded in 1999, his early pursuit in watercolour painting led him to take an interest in glass thanks to the transparency and optical qualities of the material.
Ian and Richard Abell design this unique metalwork in collaboration with a team of artists and craftsmen, using pigmented resin and other materials to create a fantastic array of effects.
I was particularly taken aback by these beautiful vessels by Chung Hae-Cho, a Korean artist who applies lacquer and cloth in a number of different layers on top of a foam form.
Woodwork handmade by Taisuke Hirabayashi, a Japanese craftsman who turns functional objects from wood. Not only are they simple, they also have a distinct style of their own.
Martin Azua and Marc Vidal have combined to create a series of vases that have been deformed by the weight of a stone, showcasing nature and craft converging in to one.
Margrit Linck made ceramics in Heimberg, Switzerland between 1940 and 1980. Realising her calling she started to develop fresh and timeless forms that could stand the test of time.
Mr Sugawara is an extremely popular maker in Japan, so we asked him kindly if he could craft us some new works and what's come of it is a really beautiful selection of functional objects.
South Korean Artist Kiho Kang creates these fantastic looking vessels by coiling and pinching clay, working on them in stages to create striking geometric forms that have an architectural quality.
