New in store!

April 25th, 2017

 

A few new additions to the store. They will be soon available online at mjolk.ca but we couldn’t wait to share these beautiful items.

We are very happy to have 3 pieces from Matthias Kaiser. Matthias studied at Parsons school of design in NY and at Vienna’s university of applied arts, and apprenticed with two japanese master potters in Seto and Karatsu.

He focuses on the inherent qualities of the material and the succession of steps that constitute the process of creation.Trying to reveal, not hide, what is there and has been done. By subtracting industrial processes as far as possible from the refinement of the raw materials and totally from manufacture, the finished pieces retain a heterogenous appearance. His creations are a sum of parts, with infinite possible combinations of shape and surface, texture and colour, weight and size. The pots contain more than a functional and decorative aspect, their poetry lies in the balance of intent and accident as well as in the interplay of physical attributes.

This antique is also new this week. This is a Japanese Sueki Eathenware Ikebana Flower Vase.

Mourne Textiles

  • We love Mourne Textiles, and are really excited to carry more of their products. These placemats and coasters create the perfect harmony with wood elements and Japanese dishware.
  • Created by Gerd Hay-Edie and used by designer Robin Day for Hille in 1951, the Mourne Check was to become a signature fabric widely used for much of his furniture during his ten year period designing for the brand. This durable linen, wool and cotton mix is carefully handwoven on the Kentish looms originally imported in the 1950’s, with colours matched from original heritage palettes.

 

 

 

  • Set of 4 placemats, each 45cm x 30cm
  • Fabric – 50% Linen/ 25% Cotton/ 25% Wool
  • Set of 4 coasters, each 10cm x 10cm
