Based in Germany, Atsushi Kitahara is a Japanese ceramic artist who designs and casts all of his work by hand. His style is characterised by these forms that tend to mix simplicity with experimentation.
The different scenarios he sees in everyday life lead to some unusual designs that challenge many of the traditional ideas deep rooted in the ceramic industry. One thing that's consistent though is Atsushi's consideration for function and his careful approach when it comes to setting the desired shape.
Through the use of Kitahara's objects we are able to not only enjoy the process of dining or drinking, but also enjoy those things that we use on a daily basis. Bringing light to those so called ‘forgotten' objects that sit quietly in open space.
