Pennsylvania-based Bashar and Roula Jarjour are the owners and creators at Jarjour Pottery.  They specialize in ceramics and pottery producing an extensive range of functional and decorative vessels.  While Bashar seeks perfection in each form Roula focuses on the finishes of each item.   Together they arrive at a line of uniquely attractive pieces.

Jackie Needham


UK- based artist Jackie Needham specializes in ceramics. She enjoys experimenting with a wide range of making and firing techniques to achieve a range of surface colouration and textures.  These unique pieces are hand-built using a mixture of slabbing, pinching and coiling methods.  Her influences are folklore and fairy tales which she mixes with elements of her own childhood memories and dreams.

More of her work can be seen on her website and on Facebook.

Art Fiber Endo

Next time we are in Kyoto we will probably be on the lookout for this shop, Art Fiber Endo. We love the collaboration between this specialty materials store and Kutani Tsutsumi, a pottery manufacturer established in 1860.  The shop offers supplies for making your own thimble and bamboo string tassels.  The exquisite tassels incorporate a hanging thread from above, a Kutani thimble as a cap and a tufted yarn for the skirt.  They also create other versions of tassels which we are anxious to see up close.

You can find Art Fiber Endo on their website, Facebook and Minne, a Japanese handmade marketplace.
