PRECIOUS  BOWLS

  Contemporary Irish design inspired by an ancient Japanese concept.  Kintsugi: the repair of broken porcelain using pure gold.  Wabi sabi: seeing beauty in imperfection.   Intrigued by these ideas I have created a vibrant collection of chawan (teabowls).  Teeming with symbolism around hope and reassurance these 'broken' bowls have such resonance for so many of us today.

Do get in touch if there is a particular shape or colour bowl you are looking for.  I love to paint them.  Especially for you.
