Incense Holder and Plate by Shino Takeda
Made in Brooklyn, NY
"All my work are hand-build, one of a kind. Searching for perfect imperfection, tracing memories, making story that connect the old to the new." - Shino Takeda
Her glazing is especially unique. There is sense of freedom which Takeda herself found in the city of NY. Having more traditional background growing up in Kyushu where there are lots of pottery towns, Takeda's work is an appropriation of those traditional Japanese art forms mixed with the freshness you find in NYC today.
