Sabi pendants are a limited series of hollow form neckpieces inspired by Ken Mihara, a Japanese ceramist. Mihara’s pieces are high-fired unglazed pottery that reflects ancient techniques from the 5th-6th century known as Sue ware.
These vessels were originally used for rituals and funerary and was first introduced to Japan by Korean craftsman.
Sabi are pendants but are also small objects. Through patination, I aimed to achieve a surface aesthetics that reflects an object with a long lost past. For the wearer, Sabi is a vessel that shares your life’s journeys, your life’s stories and a container of memories and experiences of past and future.
