OEN – Design and handcrafted goods

I believe since I am researching for my own porcelain line, visiting artisans, experimenting and producing, I stumble more and more upon sites that offer great concepts such as OEN. They are a passionate collective from England covering topics such Design, Architecture and Photography, however they tend to showcase anything handmade that is inspiring. With an online store now open, they sell products they believe are crafted with passion and that have an underlying simplicity.

Desde que investigo para mi propia linea de porcelana, encuentro cada vez más ejemplos con conceptos muy buenos como OEN. Se trata de un colectivo creativo inglés que cubre temas como el diseño, la arquitectura y la fotografía y que ha abierto ahora un online shop con productos artesanales que se caracterizan por haber sido producido con mucha pasión, dedicación y una línea de diseño pura y simple.

Mushimegane Books is a series of ceramics and porcelain on the theme of people and sounds. A project started by Japanese maker Misa Kumabuchi, working out of her studio in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture.

The paperweight egg is one part of ‘The Gropius Set’ and has been produced in Vienna thanks to the Carl Auböck workshop. Each one takes many days to create by a skilled craftsman, they hammer, cut, shape and polish the piece until it’s the perfect weight and form.

This safety needle really show off the craftsmanship of the Hornvarefabrikken workshop. Each is handmade in Bøvlingbjerg, Denmark from Nigerian sourced cattle horn, either Watussi or Ankole. The craftsmen then refine this material down to the desired shape with each object taking on the patina and character of the horn.

Sólo talleres como Hornvarefabrikken pueden trabajar unos imperdibles como éste. Esta hecho a mano en Bøvlingbjerg, Dinamarca y procede de cuerno de reses de Nigeria (el Ankole es conocido por su enorme cornamenta). Los artesanos perfeccionan después la materia prima hasta conseguir la forma deseada y aplicándole una pátina. 

You will find lovely treasure browsing through the web shop and reading all the product information, I have spent an afternoon and morning… Have a lovely weekend all!

Yo he pasado horas, es decir, una tarde y parte de una mañana navegando  por su web, son unos auténticos tesoros que vais a encontrar allí. ¡Buen fin de semana a todos!
