A ceramic 'ship' by Japanese artist Yu Kobayashi. Glazed in white wash, sgraffito detail and yellow accents.
These great sculptures are inspired the the ships the artist can see from her home and studio on the coast in Makinohara, Japan. The shape of the boat and a love for the sea is a recurring theme in Yu Kobayashi's ceramics and paintings.
SIZE: 21 cm x 12 cm
We first collaborated with the renowned Japanese ceramic artist, Yu Kobayashi in 2013, when we invited her to visit us to talk about her work. Since then we have launched several online collections, hosted an exhibition, worked with The World of Interiors magazine to feature her home and studio in Makinohara and made a short film of her work.
"With the playfulness of an outsider artist, yet with the skill and understanding of a highly crafted ceramicist - her work is surprising and unique, referencing ancient cultures from Japan to Africa"
