KeikoMatsuiReally liking these ceramic pieces created by Japanese ceramist Keiko Matsui. Love the stitched and button enhanced bowls and cups. The Sydney-based artist says this of her work:

“Each ceramic object I create is part of me. I am communicating with myself, as I work on the wheel. I take pleasure in the process. Sitting on a wheel in silence is my meditative moment. When the clay actually becomes centered, my mind becomes “mu” – nothingness in Japanese.”

A family member introduced me to this link, Barrington Blue, a shop that sells unique one-of-a-kind pieces and upholstery. Founded by Carrie Olshan, this online shop features an amazing selection of vintage fabrics rejuvenated as pillows and furniture, all of which are handcrafted by Carrie in her Los Angeles workshop.
