In ceramics the glazes tend to shine as they react with the clay and heat, but I enjoyed these tones created by Mayumi Yamashita, also the techniques she has used to create contrast in the surfaces.
Just a quick post for all our readers who were interested in the ceramics handmade by Japanese potter Katsufumi Baba, a new selection of his work has now come back in to stock.
Just arrived is a lipped lacquer vessel and lacquer lunch box, two very special objects from Japanese woodworker Maiko Okuno, both of which are crafted by hand at her studio in Japan.
These new boxes by Fujii Works are back in at OEN shop and come in small and large and have been handmade with a horse chestnut lid by Japanese woodworkers Kenichi and Minako Fujii.
Yumiko Yasufuku is trained as an interior designer but later went on to make pottery as a hobby, which is now her full-time job, making rustic but contemporary pottery out of her studio in Gifu city.
Akihiro Nikaido is one of the more popular artists in the shop and has a very strong following in Japan, so we are pleased to present a small selection of new works in the shop.
