Description

John Crichton was one of the most talented and progressive New Zealand designers of the mid 20th century. His pioneering work helped define what is now known as Pan Pacific modernism, a locally inspired fusion of Japanese, American and Pacific references combined with a modernist ethic.

Crichton's work is rare and sought after as it was generally produced in low quantities by local artisans. This generously proportioned, hand turned Kauri bowl is an inspired example of the Pan-Pacific modern style Crichton is loved for.
