One-of-a-kind vases hand-built by Japanese-born, New York-based artist Miwa Neishi. Inspired by primitive forms and Japanese abstractions, these bud vases are fired and glazed to be functional, housing single blooms or displayed simply as an object. Created especially in its scaled-down form for DAMDAM, we like them particularly by the bath or bedside table.
"In this modern world of technology and mass-produced objects, I think many of us forget the history of our living with nature. Pottery has been part of people's lives since the prehistoric era all over the world, and that means most of our ancestral cultures have experienced working and living with clay. It's important to know how we used to create tools and objects by hand. It connects us to nature and reminds us of our original way of living. As an artist, I hope my objects will bring visions of reconnecting to the earth," says the artist about her work.
