NY-based British ceramicist Romy Northover describes her work as “ancient future”. With her bowls, she updates the Japanese art of Kintsugi, which treats breakage and repair as integral to the beauty of an object. Instead of the traditional gilded lacquer, she uses black putty for a contemporary look.
Decorative bowls, handwash only or wipe clean with cloth.
Northover’s process for her Fractured collection is inspired by Kintsugi, the ancient Japanese technique of repairing broken pottery. “That really hit a chord with me – that something could be more valuable after having been destroyed.”Visit Designer Page
