Shoji Hamada

I’ve just had the heads-up from those fine purveyors of ceramic art, Oxford Ceramics, about this stunning Shōji Hamada bottle vase, available now from their website. The vase has an ash with kaki glaze and iron brushed stem leaf motif and comes in a fitted wooden box with signed lid.

This is an important piece, originally given as a gift from Hamada to Stella Coe (famous for Ikebana in Japanese department stores and the only recognised master of Japanese flower arranging outside of Japan) and comes with full provenance.

Steve Jobs Apple chip letter

Apparently, in the early days of Apple Inc, Steve Jobs would occasionally sign computer chips, attach them to Apple stationery and send them out randomly to Apple fans. A precursor obviously to his later penchant for responding personally via email to random Apple customers.
