TANI Q

"SHIGARAKI"


Jan.27(Fri) - Feb.05(Sun), 2017

TANI Q

 

transfiguration of SHIGARAKI


Raised in Shigaraki potters' family, he has good oppotunities to research on old Shigaraki pieces. With the obtained skills and profond knowledge he features the concept of modern arts in his potteries.

Tani Q loves old Shigaraki wares but he wouldn't make fake Shigaraki antiques . He pursuits his ideal beauty in Shigaraki even though only a few people can understand his concept.

 

The well-burnt texture is hard enough but the surface is not grossy. Because it was burnt for long time (or twice) at relatively low temperature.

The white clay partially turned to HIIRO(orange), the color of fire. Well-melted natural ash made some reseda flows. The bright and smokey colors with some dark scorchs covered the fine and moist looking texture.
