Rabbit and Dragon was founded by ceramicist, Mariko Tanaka, in 2014, as a multi-disciplinary studio. R+D philosophy is to create high quality, one-of-a-kind works with a unique and playful aesthetic. All of our designs are modern and functional. 

Mariko Tanaka works in porcelain, using throwing, hand-building, or slip casting techniques to create her pieces. 

In addition, R+D Studio regularly collaborates with other designers to produce textiles, prints, 3D paper models, and glassware.
