Rusty Thought

Put together effortlessly but perfectly, we discovered & started following Ryo long ago. Though it was only recently that we saw how well his work would fit in to our shop, also known as the brand Rusty Thought. For the pieces Ryo creates are personal and quietly evocative, as if he'd reached into the back of his mind & made something conceptual perfectly tangible. Living and working in Tokyo, Ryo's work blends ancient techniques (ohaguro & shippoyaki) with a modern sense of Japanese minimalism.
