Vessel by Noe Kuremoto
Otsukimi, moon-viewing, is a Japanese festival honouring the Autumn moon. Otsukimi traditions include displaying decorations made from Japanese pampas grass (susuki) and eating rice dumplings called Tsukimi dango in order to celebrate the beauty of the moon.
The Moon vase, as with all Noe's work, is an understated representation of her cultural heritage. She shares the traditional Japanese view that spirits are everywhere, especially in nature. This single flower vase - an ‘Ichirin Zashi’, invites the spirit of nature into people’s homes in the simplest form possible. It’s representative of her desire to make a deeper connection in a world that can often feel shallow.
“The single vase comes from my deep ocean of childhood memories, I hope every piece I make helps my son to see the world as a beautiful place.”
Noe Kuremoto was born in Osaka Japan, and graduated in Fine Art with First Class Honours from Central Saint Martins College of Art. She works and lives in London with her family, including sausage dog Lassie.
