Ceramicist Ikuko Iwamoto will be at Tent London later this month with a collection of her unusual designs which we think will be well worth a peek if you're in town.
Iwamoto is Japanese-born, but now London-based after graduating from both the Camberwell College of Arts and the RCA, and has developed a peculiarly beautiful style which we like very much here at M.E.
"I make exquisite cups and other objects for a bizarre tea ceremony. They suggest the everyday, the ordinary, but are in fact extra-ordinary. They are the vehicle to make visible an invisible, microscopic world. A world of intricacy and detail, of mathematical pattern and organic chaos, of beauty and repulsion." she says.
Head over to the Old Truman Brewery in East London to see her new works from the 22nd of September
