A ceramic island planter in Umi that has gone to @the_plantroom. The cylinder was first made then attached to its base at leather hard stage. The whole thing has a slow drying process and has to equalise before firing to prevent the parts from detaching. It celebrates the 'bottom' of the planter. Unlike my other planter where the drip tray is recessed into the base, this one is big and acts like a platform. In my sketches, I had a chain of hearts cascading down from the cylinder and strewn over the base. I can't wait to see how others style with this! 🌱🌱🌱 . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #umi #陶器 #陶瓷
A repost from @nonihana_ . I got to know Yukiko via insta and she is such a lovely, warm hearted person. I just love how she styles with flowers, photographs and captures light, and always with a light touch. Her instagram feed is just amazing and I am so thrilled my vase is used here. 🌺🌺🌺 📷: @nonihana_ 🌱 ------------------------------------ In love with my new vase, in love with these flowers too❤️ Thank you so much Charmian! @bisuketto_studio I really love this 'Yuki '( meaning snow)vase! #camellia #vase #sospecial #myfavorite #treasures #椿 オーストラリアの陶芸作家 Charmianさん @bisuketto_studio から届いたばかりの花器に咲き始めの椿をいけてみました。 花器は、温かみのある柔らかな質感で色はベージュと白のグラデーション。白色は大地に薄っすら積もった雪をイメージされたのでしょうか… ❄️ この花器の名前は、"Yuki" (雪)

Vases in Umi and Sumi. These were made a while ago as a special order for a very special person. Mel @antlerandmoss who believed in me when I first launched Bisuketto Studio was my very first stockist. I think for every maker you will always remember your first stockist. She isn't just a stockist but has been an influence on my design process. She has been a great sounding board, fantastic cheerleader and a mentor. . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #sumi #umi #陶器 #陶瓷
Hanging planters and a whole lot of other planters going to @theplantsocietyau. So excited to be stocking with these guys. Jason's passion for plants is infectious! Also, his book Plant Society was released today! 🌱🙌 . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #umi #陶器 #陶瓷 #plantsociety
My planter in Umi with drip tray. It's been amazing having some time off after my huge 3 days at Finders Keepers. It wasn't easy standing there with your work out on display and watching people's reactions but it wasn't as scary as I thought. I loved meeting and chatting with anyone who came over to the stall. Thank you to everyone who bought a piece, offered words of encouragement and took the time to learn more about the craft. 🙏When I have tough days in the studio, I will look to those moments to push on. 🌟 . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #umi #陶器 #陶瓷 #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers
Last day at Finders Keepers! I will be here at Royal Exhibition building from 10am - 5pm. Thank you all who stopped by the last two days. It was lovely seeing new and familiar faces! This mug is nearly sold out. Only 2 left! Melbourne you do love your coffee! ☕️ . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #sumi #陶器 #陶瓷 #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers
Canister in Sumi. I have been exploring 'edges' in my new work. I've always been fascinated by the idea of the edge and I wanted to extend the edge detail of the handle on my mugs to my other works. Edge by definition is the outside limit of an object, area, or surface. I'm interested in the line that determines boundary, separates inside from outside. But I also think the edge can be the turning point from a horizontal to a vertical face. In this canister design, I have a new bottom edge detail that not only defines the vertical face to the horizontal but also encapsulates my potter's stamp. This idea is further extended to the lid where the lid handle detail is an expressed edge. Only 2 available in Sumi. . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #sumi #陶器 #陶瓷 #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers
From my new range and ready for launch at Finders Keepers this Friday. I'm calling this a ceramic island planter. Different to my recessed drip tray planters, this one has an extended base. Can be used as a vase or to house an indoor plant. 🌱 . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #yuki #陶器 #陶瓷 #ceramicplanter #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers
My 6 year old daughter was busy 'working' this morning as I was test assembling my display stand for Finders Keepers. She said that you get a special docket for any purchase made with Bisuketto Studio! ❤️😂 . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #yumi #陶器 #陶瓷 #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers
Ok after low lows, here's a much needed high! A cute stop motion film made with @choooothetrain showcasing my new planters. Tap on screen for music. The planters are designed to look like they are floating. The trays are designed to fit into the recess of the planter to provide this effect. Lots of precision required where trays / discs were fitted at turning stage to provide the right base for their planter counterpart. Available with a drip tray insert for indoor / outdoor use or a shallow disc insert for plants that require little watering. They are making their debut at Melbourne Finders Keepers next weekend. So excited!!!! . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #umi #yuki #sumi #hoshi #planters #陶器 #陶瓷 #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers
New planter range to be launched really soon. It has been a really rough ride of late. My two kilns are pushed to their limits with back to back firings and one decided to not cooperate. I'm staring at around 100 pieces of unfired work. For whatever reason, I have lost half the salad bowls that I made for upcoming markets and that's on top of the plates I've lost (see earlier post). They say potters have to come to terms with 10% loss. I hate losing work as it is not just losing hours spent working on the piece but hours that could have been spent with family. I feel tired, that I have set myself unrealistic expectations and now I am just pushing on because I have worked way too hard to drop the ball right now. New planter range to be launched at Finders Keepers Melbourne 20 Oct. . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #umi #陶器 #陶瓷 #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers
See that ramekin. See those spots. I was actually very excited and thought I was onto a new thing. I was going to name it galaxy. Then someone said it looked liked spilled paint and I wasn't sure anymore. I did say quietly under my breath that it suited Jackson Pollock but he said I'm no Jackson Pollock. Shock! 😂 . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #yuki #maybegalaxy #陶器 #陶瓷 #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers
Beaker in Umi with low rim plates in Yuki. I have had better luck with my firings. Yay! I have had to slow my firing right down and add some calcined alumina on the kiln shelves to act as an extra barrier. So far, no breakages! 🤞The prep for Finders Keepers and Melbourne Ceramics Market continues!!! 📷 : @fotostazione . . . . . #bisukettostudio #handthrown #wheelthrown #ceramicdesign #stoneware #ceramics #ceramica #cerámica #ceramique #keramik #australianceramics #ceramicartist #minimalism #minimalart #ceramicsforlife #australianart #pottery #pottersofinstagram #umi #yuki #陶器 #陶瓷 #thefinderskeepers #melbournefinderskeepers #melbourneceramicsmarket
