Twelve Plates of Christmas

12 – 23 December 2020


We were delighted to celebrate Christmas with Makoto with twelve special ceramic pieces. Inspired by the traditional Christmas carol from 1780 ‘twelve days of Christmas’ marked twelve unusual and festive gifts bestowed upon a true love.

Japanese ceramic artist Makoto Kagoshima’s celebrated ceramics are a fusion of design and heartwarming motifs making each object a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art. His hand produced and decorated works are designed with a variety of plants and animals remembered from his childhood. They speak of whimsy and elegance and an almost quixotic sense of a fleeting pleasure somehow caught.
