Living Talk is a Japanese ceramics company located in the rural town of Tajimi, which is surrounded by lush mountains and has a rich history of pottery making. Living Talk describes their design ethos in the following way: "The space between ink writing on Japanese washi paper. The subdued texture of lacquerware. Stifling light. A room of soft light seen through shoji paper screens. The spaces around us are alive with distinctive Japanese aesthetics and time."
