Showcasing exquisite stoneware Shiboridashi, Chawan & Teapots by Karina Klages
Karina is based in Lower Saxony. Her works are based on the symbiosis of perfection and imperfection of nature, inspired by classic Japanese teaware forms, created with the aesthetics and spirit of wabi sabi flowing through them, celebrating the balance, depth and subtle beauty that these ideals encapsulate.
