The Tanaka Contrast Bowl is inspired by the Japanese tradition of kintsugi, the ancient Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with a special lacquer. Beautiful seams of plutonium color highlight the fractures and breaks in this handmade bowl instead of hiding or disguising them, giving a sense of history and life (with all its imperfections) to an otherwise perfect piece. Explore Tanaka's full line here.

About Keiichi Tanaka
The work of Keiichi Tanaka stems from a lifelong fascination with the often-overlooked beauty of functional objects. Inspired by the visual poetry of agricultural implements, Tanaka creates softly textured glazes and unexpected shapes for otherwise common objects. His rustic-yet-contemporary work invokes an atmosphere of, as he puts it, "time accumulation" - the sense that an object could be equally at home in a long-ago past or a not-so-distant future. Tanaka has exhibited his art widely throughout Japan and Europe and currently lives in Saitama, Japan.
