Product designer Michiko Shimada has crafted a collection of beautiful ceramics referencing familiar items transformed into home wares. Her Etsy store features detailed items such as wooden branch spoons, apple-shaped jars, and banana salt & pepper shakers. She finds her inspiration in shapes around everyday life and recreates them into something useful for the home.
Shimada studied at Parsons and has established her ceramics studio in Brooklyn where she produces these curiosities. Her items are currently being sold by Still House and other online independent retailers.
