Botanical tulip vase - dahlia

Reiko Kaneko

Introducing Botanical, a new collection of vases, plates and bowls from ceramicist Reiko Kaneko that have been made during an experimental phase of work. 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.

Each piece in the Botanical collection is unique, they are all hand-made and decorated by Reiko. Together, they form the Botanical Studies exhibition currently on show at our Curtain Road showroom. Purchased items will be dispatched after the exhibition finishes in mid-September.

This piece has sold, please get in touch with our showroom team to discuss ordering a similar version, with a lead time of 6-8 weeks.

Product Information

Reiko Kaneko is a ceramicist, designer and educator based in London. She works at various scales in a range of typologies, designing both products for manufacture and bespoke pieces for commissioned projects. The focus of her working practice is on mastery of material and form.

The first pieces in this new Botanical collection were either sketched on in glaze colours or painted with white glaze. More recently, Reiko has closely studied the pâte-sur-pâte technique (literal meaning paste on paste), 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.
