Shiko designs perfectly rustic kitchen vessels
The Brunswick-based pottery brand is renowned for making unique, hand-glazed bowls and plates to add an earthy touch to your kitchen collection.
Shiko is a pottery line run by designer and maker Sophie Harle, who creates a range of items inspired by the Japanese concept of Mingei. The concept emphasises the importance of vessels used in every day life, and Sophie has created a large range of bowls and plates that are perfect for regular use. Each type of product is created in small batches, made and glazed by hand in a gas kiln, creating unique variations in the colour and finish.
The Shiko store offers a range of goods including serving plates with twisted rims, hand thrown chocolate clay plates, porcelain bowls and reclaimed clay salad bowls. As each item is crafted by hand, size may vary – though this only enhances the unique aspect of the collection. Most Shiko products are dishwasher and microwave friendly, making them a perfect gift or addition to your own cupboard. Browse the wares in Shiko’s online store.
