Kata Kata Ceramics

The ceramics range featuring the animal characters designed by textile designers Kata Kata from Tokyo are now available from HOW. Kata Kata is the brand created by two textile designers Takeshi Matsunaga and Chie Takai, based in Tokyo. Their distinct animal characters - whales, orangutan, bison, bears, bird and hyena – are formed from simple linework and a minimal colour palette screen printed onto fabrics using the traditional katazome technique. Their popularity has led to a range of stationery - cards and letters. Kurashiki Design Planning company makers of homewares with a quirky, fun aesthetic, have worked with Kata Kata to create a ceramics range. The distinct animal characters have been transformed into a series of small ceramic dishes maintaining their naïve, hand-drawn style.
