Handmade Ceramic Box - Black
Unique handmade ceramic box by one of our favorite artists (and fellow French native), Florence Pénault. Those have so many possible uses, we don't know where to start.. They're perfect in the kitchen as a salt cellar or tea caddy, but are so elegant that that they will look great in the bedroom to store jewelry or any necessary item on your bed side table. The finished glaze is reminiscent of a 14th century Korean technique, called Buncheong. Each box has a lose lid that fits perfectly on its base (no hinge nor lock).
Florence resides between France, Connecticut and Boston. Of her work, she says:
"My influence is certainly Asian. I made several trips to Japan but I have been
mostly influenced by the Korean aesthetic.
While in Osaka I saw a simple and humble piece in the Osaka’s museum of
ceramics which broke my heart. Well, there were two. One was a black gourd
from Korea, the other a white vase, also from Korea, not even regular or
symmetrical but full of elegance in its simplicity. It was a lesson than I humbly try
to follow. (...)
I like minimalism and simplicity and give priority to the shape of a piece so the decoration is secondary. And if I put a decoration, I find inspiration in my everyday life in France and in nature and like keep it simple. "
