Megumi Yoshida

Megumi Yoshida, a Japanese designer based in New York, has become known for her materially elegant and minimal ceramic forms. Working primarily with slip casting, her crisp porcelain designs, such as lamps, vases, and tableware, are poetic instances within her ongoing exploration of the medium. Her thoughtful dialog ranges between Japanese tradition and western modernism, becoming evident in objects that echo the soft reduction of Brancusi-like forms or the nature-inspired geometries of Japanese Kamon insignia. Yoshida’s works traverse the boundary between functional design and the self-sustained art object.Yoshida founded mgmy studio in 2007 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where she produces her work.

Faceted Planter

Terra-cotta planters are ubiquitous, but these pots (available in white or natural clay) by Brooklyn-based designer Megumi Yoshida update the typology with a mod geometric bent. Only downside: The opening in the top is tight, requiring a tiny trowel (or teaspoon?) to add soil.
