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.
One maker who caught my attention was talented British artist Susan Phillips, who has been constructing these unique geometric sculptures from porcelain and creating intriguing architectural spaces.
Eric Roinestad is a ceramicist, designer and art director who is based in Los Angeles. He was born and raised in California and now designs unique sculptural objects for interiors and the home.
We used a bit of down time to update our feature on TRUCK Furniture, showcasing photos from our trip to Japan where we visited the workshop, showroom and cafe late last year.

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.
