The “Revolver” vases are one of the projects Yiannis Ghikas developed during his creative residency in Arita, Japan in the summer of 2018. Two molds for two of the three sizes were made and a few pieces of each size were made in different finishes.
In order to use Arita’s more characteristic decorating technique, hand decoration with ink that turns to blue after glazing, Ghikas asked the skilful craftsmen of Shingama to hand drawn the lined pattern on the vases as created by the designer and the “Revolver Deluxe” version was born.
