Black ceramic bowl with abstract pattern
KOEMI | Dipping / serving bowl
Koemi is a collection of tableware inspired by both my love for Japanese minimalist aesthetics and Japanese food. Being a sushi enthusiast I often dreamed of creating my own dishes which would celebrate the food that brings me so much joy.
Koemi is a collection characterised by clean lines, smooth textures and a clear contrast between the clay body and the abstract design. I enjoyed playing with the contrast between white and black porcelain and creating absolutely one of a kind patterns. I love knowing that a pattern is so unique that it can't be reproduced and that each piece of the collection has its own character.
Koemi appropriately means "a little smile" in Japanese. I often smile when I eat; it's a pleasure, a privilege and an absolute gift.
This one of a kind dipping / serving bowl has been hand built with a smooth black ceramic body. The black abstract pattern was created with white porcelain whose translucency allows for the pattern to have that silky and delicate effect.
approx 13 cm diameter (approx 4.7 in)
The Koemi collection has been glazed with a transparent matt glaze and therefore is food and dishwasher safe.
Since all of my pieces are handmade no two items will ever be the same. I hope you will appreciate the uniqueness of each piece.
