Bald and chunky, Esther Shimazu’s quirky clay figures are unabashedly naked and delightfully indulgent. Drawing up on her Japanese ancestry and experience living in a laid-back Asian community in Hawaii, the artist imbues her figures with a delightful sense of humanity. Shimazu uses hand-building techniques to construct the clay figures. After the pieces are colored with slips and oxides and fired, she hand sands them and rubs in pigments to create a sense of volume and lifelike color.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
