Reiko Kaneko

Have you heard of Reiko Kaneko? She is a ceramics designer who combines the best of English (bone china and eccentricity) with Japanese (kawaii-ness). She is causing a stir in the design world with her work, which is at once witty, practical and beautiful. Everything is made in Stoke-on-Trent - the home of British pottery. Have a look for yourself...
