Studio Joo is a brand of thoughtfully-designed and handmade objects by Brooklyn artist, Elaine Tian.
Her ceramics combine her dual backgrounds in sculpture (form/materials) and design (function) and are inspired by the beauty of simplicity and the wabi sabi aesthetic.
The Studio Joo tea bowls, exclusively for ITO EN are made from porcelain; each bowl was handmade on a pottery wheel in Brooklyn.
These items are made in the wabi sabi tradition. Crazing, irregular textures and marks are part of the handmade nature of the work, and should be embraced.
