New Exhibit: Vases for the Wabi Sabi Home

We have launched an online exhibit here of our unique, stunning vases. They are all handmade and kiln-fired in Japan.

The vases we offer can be used for floral arrangements, or they can stand alone as decorative works, adding beauty to any space.

Kintsugi: The Art of Repair

One of our clients shared a great article with us about kintsugi, the Japanese art of repair. The article, entitled “Kintsugi: The Centuries-Old Art of Repairing Broken Pottery with Gold,” goes over some details about the Japanese art repair history. Please take a look for an explanation of different kinds of kintsugi, and some of the artists that are taking the philosophy and the art to new places.

We had previously posted a video on the interesting kintsugi on our blog. Feel free to check that post out HERE.

Fall Continues

We got our first snow yesterday, but hopefully, there will still be some more beautiful fall days left. This Bamboo-shaped vase by Ichino Masahiko is made using his own akadobe glaze. Although a smaller vase, the Bamboo Vase stands out for its form, adding interest to any space.

Pottery as Decoration

In the interior decor world, "form vs. function" is a never-ending theme, and pottery is the ultimate form. As it is used for both its aesthetic purposes, as well as functioning as tea or dinnerware, or for flower arrangement, Japanese pottery has it all.  

Here are some examples of our customers' uses of their teacups and bowls as decor, instead of using them as vessels for eating or drinking.
