New arrival:Ceramic sake+tea cups, hanging planters, and necklaces from Shino Takeda.
In my opinion, there is no gift more wonderful than hand thrown, glazed ceramic. Each piece is formed with the warmth of an artist’s own hand and visions. Just arrived at Sword + Fern are very special sake and tea cups, hanging planters, and necklaces by Brooklyn-based artist Shino Takeda. Takeda’s technique is influenced by her home island Kyushu’s rich history in ceramics and a shared passion for a life of traveling and collecting ceramics with her mother.The details present on each of her pieces are made with tons of love and attention.
It amazes me how an object so small can carry such beautiful moments. Come unfold the rich intricacies in each piece and fill them with your own stories.-EH
