There's already the blankets, quilts, bedding and pillows thread, and the general superliving thread in superculture, but it seems like superfuture's missing a general homewares thread - and I'll try and post a furniture thread in the future if one doesn't exist. 

I'm sure there's a lot of students my age or a bit older moving into their first apartments, and I hope their fondness for thoughtfully designed and well-made objects extends beyond clothing. 

 

This is thread for all the ceramics, eating utensils, glassware, other tableware, tablecloths, placemats and other assorted things

Katsufumi Baba is a japanese potter working out of Fukuoka who does a lot of nice ceramics, I'm especially fond of his work using hakeme, a technique where the clay solution is applied via brush to the pottery while it's on a potter's wheel, producing some unique and beautiful results.

 

Here's a video explanation of Hakeme

 

 

 

And here's some of Baba's work

some of fog linen's stuff is nice and fairly affordable, although for alot of really basic shit (tea towels etc) i'd just buy from a cheap department store as all its going to be used for is cleaning up tomato soup.

ikea is dope

 

I don't own much from Ikea, but their Korken bottles are great value for money ( I think they're like $1.99 (AUD) for the 1 litre versions). Simple, made with lead-free glass, and have yet to leak when stored horizontally, great for anyone with a water filter, or just an alternative to a vase if you want to do flower arrangements

Ryohei Yoshiyuki is a Japanese designer who's done a bunch of whimsical and interesting stuff, including a series of ash-trays made from coffee grounds (seen below). He studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands, but lives and works in Japan. You can see a catalog of all his work and descriptions of specific projects on his website.

His most interesting work so far, in my opinion, is this series of hand-hammered copper plates, produced exceedingly (0.3 mm) thin, finished with tin edges. They come in three sizes and can be bought from Jan Jan van Essche's shop, Atelier Solarshop
