I recently discovered, and may now have a slight obsession for, Danu Ceramics.
Danu’s founder Ruth Power, who I discovered through her Instagram, says she’s inspired by ‘travels, nature, wanderlust, antiquated trade routes and our home country of Ireland. I’ll sing from that hymn sheet please.
Dipping bowls – from €12
Ruth makes all of her ceramics in Dublin and believes that ‘objects created from clay should retain a natural quality…with evidence of being made by human hands‘.
Coconut bowls €20
Turquoise Succulent Planters – from €20
Porcelain bowls – from €12
Danu ceramics have a natural, organic feel, tying in with the ancient Zen Buddhist philosophy of Wabi-sabi (侘寂), which, as Ruth says, ‘values the imperfect, the handmade and the simple’.
