coe&waito is a collaborative partnership between Alison Coe and Carly Waito. The pair were brought together by a mutual desire to make beautiful and personal objects that thoughtfully bridge ceramics and industrial design. Since graduating from OCAD in 2004, they have been designing and producing porcelain objects in their studio in downtown Toronto.
We are infatuated with the elegant perfection of nature. Motivated by the emotional reactions ojects can inspire, our process is intuitive and careful, with an emphasis on small details. Our objects are restful, with simple forms and clean surfaces. We want to create quite objects with a deep and lasting impact, encouraging and emotional response in those who encounter them.
