Velorose x Plinth:
ELEMENTAL - ESSENTIAL: Reiko Kaneko
3 April 2020 - 31 May 2020



Velorose was introduced to the work of product designer-ceramicist Reiko Kaneko by Chloe Grimshaw of Plinth, when Velorose and Plinth began working together at the end of 2019. Velorose subsequently featured Reiko’s desirable ‘Wave’ ceramics in the long-running ‘SHOP ART’ exhibition-cum-shop, where they found a new audience

When it came to co-curating the nature-inspired exhibition ELEMENTAL (which became ELEMENTAL - ESSENTIAL under lockdown), Reiko’s artworks were the perfect choice, but what Chloe and David had not counted on when visiting Reiko’s new studio at the bottom of her garden in Tottenham was the connection that had emerged between Reiko designing and devising ceramics while simultaneously cultivating a garden. Reiko has revealed a strong personal affinity to a number of women artists who worked in garden studios, such as Barbara Hepworth in St Ives, and Frida Kahlo in Mexico City

As Reiko states, with customary directness and modesty: ‘And very soon, the garden found its way on to the ceramics’
