TOMO / Joubu Art
The studio was selected to be part of the third edition of the Kyoto Contemporary project, which proposes collaborations between japanese craftmen and french designers.
"Joubu Gama is a ceramic workshop located in Yamashina on the east side of Kyoto. The company produces each work by hand with loving care, and its richly varied color shades created with their own blended glazes are highly acclaimed both in Japan and overseas.
The flower vases created by the designers duo is a true work of art, like a canvas that fully showcases Joubu Gama’s great point of pride: colors. The reversible feature of the vase allows the flowers to be presented in multiple ways and also represents the ceramist’s know-how on various types of finishes. The color scheme, rigorously selected from among more than 200 glazes newly developed by the designers with Joubu Gama, is ideal for giving glamorous color accents to modern interior spaces."
