laughter so easily turns to hysteria for imaginative children. i felt for weeks after that i had been very, very sick, and until i completely recovered my strength i stood on laughter’s cliff and any funny thing could hurl me off to my death far below.

Feathers filled the small room. Our laughter kept the feathers in the air. I thought about birds. Could they fly is there wasn’t someone, somewhere, laughing?

Cute little wares from Gin Bay

Just got home from a lovely weekend in Big Sur, California.

The imperfect vessels of Edmund de Waal are the dreamiest of the dreamers. Absolutely loving the intentional detailing.

See more of his wares at the Oxford Ceramics Gallery

Loving these simple textures from Kim Sung Junko.

This is not the first time I’ve written a post on Mushimegane Books. Her wares are so extremely intriguing to me—simplistic forms, but all with such character. Her wares are to invoke a reflection of the earth—natural glaze colors, but interesting and detailed surface textures.

The store is run by potter Misa Kumabuchi out of her studio in Nishinomiya, Japan. These images are from her 2014 collection.
