What began as an experiment with timber remnants has developed into the Grain and Hairy
series wood rounds, crafted in Lee's South London studio. Hand-crafted from sustainably
sourced ash and beech woods, each round has the distinctive pattern of its wood grain high-
lighted using pyrography techniques, rendering each piece unique. The boards are treated
with food-grade oil creating a delightful and practical background for food presentation
purposes or simply as a beautiful interior object to enjoy. To care for your board, moisturize
often with food-grade oil and dry comply after washing.
We are very excited to presnt you these wonderful Vessels by Pia Wüstenberg.
Pia of Utopia & Utility is a Finnish-German industrial designer focusing on
handmade production of unique objects. The Stacking Vessels are crafted
from turned wood (larch / Finnish silver birch), handblown glass and ceramic.
Pia pairs these materials and skilled craftsmen who work collaboratively to
create parts of the vessel that are stacked to create the final piece. Each
vessel tells a story of this special process and none are alike. Pia is a grad-
uate of the Royal College of Art in London, England.

We are very excited to present Makoto Kagoshima, a ceramic artist based in Kagoshima in the southern,
tropical tip of Japan. Makoto Kagoshima individually illustrates whimsical and heart - warming motifs
making each piece one of a kind works of art.
He draws inspiration from travels and his love for Roman sculptures and architecture. As an avid
gardener, motifs such as pansies, roses and dianthus flowers appear throughout his designs with occa-
sional appearances of butterflies, owls and other fantastical creatures. Makoto Kagoshima’s plates are
food safe and make wonderful centerpieces for the home or the table.
We would like to Thank Almanac of Style for this wonderful article. Thank you for stopping by the shop to say hi.
