A year in the making, Hula presents a combination of classic materials renowned for their quality; Fine Bone China, Gold and Platinum. Hula's simple design emphasises its material beauty and luxurious nature.
In the spectrum of white ceramics bodies, bone china is well known for its pure, bright white finish. Light and surprisingly strong, the Hula pieces are hand gilded with gold or platinum and strung effortlessly on 9ct gold or sterling silver chains. The collection is available as single pendants or double pendant in the Sound range. The clinking sound of china on china adds an extra sensory aspect to the design making it all the more pleasing to wear.
The circle holds a certain intrigue for many and Reiko is especially interested in the calligraphic representation of a circle called ensō. Characterised by minimalism but also wabi-sabi, Hula finds its beauty in irregularity and its body without pretence. The bone china circles are cast and cut by hand creating slight asymmetry that adds to the natural look of the pieces.
Find the 12 different styles to choose from in both gold and silver chain options. Pre-order now and first deliveries will be leaving our studio in two weeks, 25th July.

As always we have been pushing forward with our designs, and so we've generated quite a few samples and one off pieces. We normally like to fill our shelves and keep them all to ourselves, but we have run out of shelf space so it is time to show you some of our favourites.
They are all unique, and have their own story to tell - objects which can strike up a conversation as well as being functional while looking beautiful. All the samples come signed by Reiko Kaneko herself adding further provenance and individuality to each piece. These are all unique items, so as one piece sells we will upload another, so keep checking back, there could be one that's just perfect for you.
THE FOLD PLATES
Early modelling experiments with simple white cards gives the design natural curves. It was created to combine the light, almost curling quality of paper with the unmoving strength of fired ceramic to create a surreal result.
