Very nice little planter, I had been admiring it for some time before I purchased. It is described as white but it isn't, it's more of a light natural clay tone but I can live with the slight difference in colour. The quality and craftsmanship is impeccable and I love the geometric shape. The reason for four stars is mainly because of poor communication from the seller but also she might want to take a picture of this gorgeous planter that captures it's actual colour better.
Ashware is a handmade ceramics and design brand of Megumi Yoshida, a Japanese designer based in Greenpoint Brooklyn, who has become known for her materially elegant and minimal ceramic forms. Working primarily with slip casting, her crisp porcelain designs, such as lamps, vases, and tableware, are poetic instances within her ongoing exploration of the medium. Her thoughtful dialog ranges between Japanese tradition and western modernism, becoming evident in objects that echo the soft reduction of Brancusi-like forms or the nature-inspired geometries of Japanese Kamon insignia. Yoshida’s works traverse the boundary between functional design and the self-sustained art object.
Yoshida founded her previous incarnation brand MGMYstudio in 2007. In January 2014 she launched the new brand Ashware. All works are designed and handmade on Ash street in Brooklyn NY.
