SPECIAL OPENING: 5th October Sat 12:00-18:00

The world is not made up of perfect squares and circles but are instead pitted, broken and weathered. At Sway Gallery, Kaneko will be showing her mended pieces as well as ceramics inspired by wabi-sabi philosophy. 

The mended pieces come to represent more than their original selves adding stories. Kaneko believes Wabi-sabi is actually a very simple concept and it’s anything but high brow. You can see it everywhere, on the pavement, on the bark of a tree. It’s a beauty that’s available to all.

ARTIST PROFILE:

After studying design at Central Saint Martins, Reiko started out designing a range of products which she had made around the world but it was the joy of working with ceramicists in The Potteries, and tapping into over two centuries of knowledge in fine bone china production that led her to concentrate on ceramics.

Reiko spent her childhood in Japan and still makes frequent visits. Japan has not only been an inspiration for the elegant simplicity to which she strives, but the key to her appreciation of craft and craftsmanship. Reiko has collaborated with makers in different materials both in England and in Japan. In addition to design work, the company specialises in ceramic glazing and experiments in the studio with new reactive glaze.
