Ten Tea Bowls and Ten Guinomi cups
with one special piece

 

YUHO KANESHIGE

"TRIBUTE TO KORAI"

 

2017.June 2(Fri) - Jun 11(Sun)

"KORAI CHAWAN” can be translated to " KOREAN tea bowl”.

But KORAI CHAWAN doesn’t mean a tea bowl that was made in Korea. Japanese tea ceremony lovers called some tea bowls with Korean taste “KORAI CHAWAN” even though the piece was made in Japan. Humble and robust tea bowls were highly estimated by Sen no Rikyu (1522-1591).
At the first sight they seem to be simple and ordinary. But to have a comfortable tea time they are so gorgeous and luxurious with their solemnity. They were precious pieces that were picked out from millions of ordinary bowls. And to make a satisfactory piece with that quality was really difficult even for a very skillful artisan.
Yuho Kaneshige presented his theme “a compliment for KORAI” for the coming exhibition. Yuho is not a person who cannot be satisfied with making a copy of old pieces. I am sure he intended to make a piece that would surpass old KORAI bowls. Please enjoy this robust but excellent quality.

 


Yuho Kaneshige(b.1950-)

Born in Inbe, Bizen area. Studied sculpture at Musashino Art University. Started working as a potter with his father, Sozan Kaneshige ( a younger brother of Toyo Kaneshige) .
Award: Encouragement Award of The Modern forms for Tea ceremony Exhibition (Tanabe Museum of Art), Association Award of Japan Ceramics Society
