"a shape derives from the moment formlessness encounters form"
- Nobuhiro Yamaguchi
White Porcelain of Taizo Kuroda
"Now, in serene seclusion − but near the peak of his career −
he lives in a house built of cedar and cypress, with plain white walls,
pure, simple and edited like his ceramics,
surrounded by trees and bamboo, looking over Sagami Bay,
and works in his next-door studio, just as ordered and uncluttered."
- Michael Dunn

an anonymously produced arts journal
issue 1: the anon
"the artists and writers contributing to this debut issue were asked to submit work exploring the theme of anonymity. Their varied responses demonstrate that ambiguity is not devoid of personality."
of course, I liked it
the Ochre store in New York
another our of favourites, we love Ochre's design style,
their mix of old & new, the materials they choose,
and their support of small independant makers.
