Bird Shaped Ring Holder by Masahiro Mori

Regular price $36 Unit price  per 

Description:
Masahiro Mori has become one of Japan’s most famous designers through his ability to instill distinctive warmth and life into mass produced ceramic ware. This ring holder resembles a poised and elegant bird, with a simple yet expressive beak, light blue glazing, and the texture of feathers around the base. Display your jewelry with a buoyant spirit through this deceptively simple design.

Variation:
Ceramic is a natural material that will patina over time. This patina may appear as discoloration and darkening from food contact, or it may also appear as ceramic crazing, which are small cracks that start to develop over time from hot liquids.

History: 
Hakusan Porcelain was founded in 1779 in the rural town of Hasami, Nagasaki prefecture, and was led by designer, Masahiro Mori, since 1957. Since Hakusan and Mori began working together to produce contemporary porcelainware, post-war ceramics was forever changed. Mori won over 100 "Good Design Awards" in his lifetime, bringing Hakusan Porcelain to the forefront of innovative ceramic design. Masahiro Mori's most famous design is his G-model soy sauce pitcher, which won the 1961 Good Design Award, and quickly became the symbol of Hakusan. Mori's last work was designing the "Wa" series for Muji in 2004, and he later passed away in 2005 at the age of 78.
