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.
These works here by English maker Rebecca Gouldson are really quite special, a variety of metal wall pieces that have been etched to show interesting signs of degradation in an abstract manner.
Lee Min Soo has made these layered containers seen here, each object has been composed of 5-10 layers of very thin casts and usually come in sets of five to eight pieces.
Seeing these works by Melbourne-based ceramic studio Ghost Wares certainly inspired me and made me think about the subtle colours and the simple shapes that they have used.
The work of Silversmith Lone Lovschal really intrigued me, not only are her skills in the field of metalwork impressive, she can also design and make works that are functional and beautiful.
I was drawn to this work by lighting designer Jason Miller, a Brooklyn-based designer and the founder of Roll & Hill, who has made this ceramic work on the pottery wheel.
