STUDIO NEWWORK: An Overview
Design

Being a recent graduate of a design college, I now have ample time to thoughtfully consider what drives me as an artist/designer/craftsman and how I want to practice design.

Ceramics by Chikako Kojima

The thing about any category of design is the fact that you can’t just stroll up and start making, well you can but not with any real authority. Any maker with substance has a particular aesthetic or concept that they follow, and this is possibly the thing you can’t “learn”, it’s something that happens through the hands and fingers of the craftsman.

Whether it be art, ceramics, film, or even clothing, I’m intrigued to see the form of order, logic and law within an item, product, space or concept. This is most important to me and has really opened up my eyes …
