Introducing Botanical, a new collection of vases, plates and bowls from ceramicist Reiko Kaneko. First developed when Reiko opened her London garden studio in 2019, the collection is inspired by, and decorated with, depictions of the flora and fauna that surround her. The first pieces in the collection were either sketched on in glaze colours or painted with white glaze.
More recently, Reiko has closely studied the pâte-sur-pâte technique, first pioneered in Sevres, France, and then at Minton’s ceramics in Stoke-on-Trent in the late 19th Century by French émigré Marc-Louis-Emmanuel Solon. Some of the latest pieces in the Botanical collection have been made using this classic technique, which Reiko has further developed with the application of a new digital process.
Visit us on Curtain Road throughout August to take a look at our window display, showcasing these beautiful ceramics.
