Shigaraki Works Planters Radnor

For his first collaboration with New York-based homeware company Radnor, Japanese ceramicist Toshihiko Yoshimoto took influence from the city of Shigaraki, renowned for its pottery and where the artist lives and practices.

An appreciation for rare and indigenous plants also inspired his series of planters, called Shigaraki Works, Yoshimoto wanted to create vessels that were appropriately beautiful to match the elegance of the native flora he admired.

Hand-made using soil from the city the Shigaraki Works planters — which are also Yoshimoto’s largest scale works yet — reflect his long-held practice of relief carvings from natural materials like stone and wood. 

Defined by organic cracks and splits, the interior accessories are made from rich red clay that is fired using a cooling reduction technique that gives the objects a unique black finish. Allowing for natural water absorption and air permeability, the coarse clay containers are a favourable environment for plants to thrive in. 

Made in limited runs, the one-of-a-kind Shigaraki Works planters are approximately 36.8 high by 38.1 wide centimetres in size.
