Description

Why We Love This

The large bottle can be used for wine, water or any drink. Individually built, glazed, fired and signed by the artist, no two pieces of Wilcoxson Brooklyn Ceramics are exactly alike.

Story

Mingei is a Japanese folk art movement developed in the late 1920s and 1930s. Its founding father was Yanagi Soetsu, known for discovering and appreciating the beauty in everyday objects made by unknown craftsmen. This handmade bottle is delicate and practical at the same time. Made from Wilcoxson Brooklyn’s porcelain recipe, the material is carefully molded then rolled into a cylinder, with a signature overlapping edge and subtle indentation. This clean white bottle is also a quiet piece of sculpture.
