Series overview

Shinju, which means “pearl” in Japanese, translates the shimmer of pearls, the ridges of oyster shells, the surrounding reefs, and the movement of the ocean into a handcrafted ceramic tile series. The effect is one of modern elegance with coastal inspiration and a nod to nature’s artistry.
