Los Angeles #1: Tortoise General Store

Jeg er på farten igen. Jeg nyder solen og varmen i LA. Jeg drøner rundt i en lille hvid Fiat500 og lagde i dag vejen forbi den lille fine butik Tortoise General Store, fyldt med håndlavet Japansk keramik.

Jeg fik ret hurtigt øje på det stabelbare Hasami Porcelain designet af butikkens ejer, Taku Shinomoto. Krus, skåle og bakker, alle deler den samme diameter, så de kan stables frit og skabe et helt lille kunstværk i sig selv.


I’m on the move again. I’m enjoying the sun and the heat in LA. I race around in a little white Fiat500 and today drove past the fine little shop Tortoise General Store, filled with handmade Japanese ceramics.

I pretty quickly spotted the stackable Hasami Porcelain designed by the store’s owner, Taku Shinomoto. Mugs, bowls and trays, all sharing the same diameter, so they can be stacked freely creating a whole work of art in itself.
