A beautifully refined hand-built vase by Takashi Endo which is made with purion clay, followed by using a reduction firing method. This results in having a stone like textured interior and exterior. This modern vessel is completely unique, through Endo’s intriguing mark making process. The form sits flawlessly, with a slight rounded body and a narrow opening. It is fully functional, as well as being aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Endo takes inspiration from architecture, music and Japanese culture. The monochromatic hues and fine textures are distinct to Endo’s work, embracing the imperfection of the materials he uses.
As all products are handmade, sizes and colour may vary slightly.
