Lillie Black Swan
a serie of original ceramic pins (tobeyaki) accessories by Yuria & Erika Matsushita
The creators of the “Little Black Swan” range of accessories are the granddaughters of a distinguished Polish designer -prof. Janusz Lenartowicz.
Their travels and studies in different places have enhanced their sense of style and have helped them to create elegant accessories that can accompany the fashions of any era. Their designs and colours have a universal appeal.
Since 2014, the two sisters have collaborated with Alyne Ohigashi, a well-known creator of Tobe pottery.
These creations, which have been widely appreciated, featured recently in an exhibition held in October 2015 in Paris, at the Château de la Petite Malmaison, former home of Josephine, the wife of Napoléon Bonaparte.
The owner of the Château, artist Stefan Czarnecki, was greatly attracted by the “Little Black Swan” creations, which reflect both Eastern and Western cultures, past and present, and are of high quality.
