Kate Brouwer is the hands and heart behind Asobimasu Clay. An ever growing collection of playful vessels, tableware and sculptural ceramics, with functionality at the forefront.
Drawing inspiration from Asobimasu, a Japanese word meaning to play, “to create without boundaries”, Kate enjoys creating pieces that bend the boundaries of traditional forms and explore their relationship to the world around us.
Inspired by native bushland and landscapes, Kate seeks to find harmony between nature and form. Creating simple yet bold vessels that provide structure for nature to become the living artwork within its walls.
The Kyokusen Vase in Chalk. Laced with curves and bathed in shadows, each vase unique in movement. Hand formed and thoughtfully squeezed, gives this vase its bold form. Kyokusen nods to tradition whilst its curving lip invites wild branches and arrangements, folding stems inside its walls. A unique object for any contemporary home, creating beautiful centerpieces when paired with natural arrangements.
*Please note as each Asobimasu vessel is made by hand, please allow for a small variance in size, approx +/- 1cm from the listed dimensions. The beauty of the firing and glazing process means each piece will have a unique surface finish and colour. Note this may vary slightly from image shown.
Dimensions: 15.5cm High / 10.5cm Wide
