NAOE KOIDE

BIZEN

 

Feb.09(Fri) - Feb.18(Sun), 2018

小出尚永 備前 Naoe Koide tea bowl

The color of his work is outstanding. And the well-burnt clay seems almost to be melted and humid. His work stood for the fire for more than 20 days and nights. He has learnt strong and robust style from Mr. Shuroku Harada. But his work in not only a pseud great HARADA. Koide has sense of vunerability of modern young generation. I can feel an honest and sincere feeling from his work.

 

NAOE KOIDE (b.1978-)
The deep and dark red color of Bizen attracts peoples' mind. We call it SHISO-IRO(the color of crimson-red leaf:Perilla frutescens var. crispa or beefsteak plant). Koide's work often shows that spectacular dark red color which can be seen on his teacher Shuroku Harada's work. And Koide has inherited Harada's power, too. His work has robust shape and vivid color.
He burns his work more than 20 days in 6 meter NOBORI-gama kiln. The term of his firing depends on the clays and styles. So the session is changed flexibly from 20 to 26 days. The most important thing to fire the kiln is setting of pottery in a kiln, he said. When he puts his pieces into the kiln, he works in dim light. That makes him easier to calculate how it will be baked. Every piece should have its most suitable and fixed point in the kiln.
In the end I think the attractive point of his work is a dainty feeling of promising adolescent people.

For this exhibition we selected carefully and picked up ten wonderful bowls that have Naoe's own style.

 

 

 

NAOE KOIDE

Born in 1978. After graduation from university he started learn Bizen potteries.
He apprenticed himself to Mr. Shuroku Harada for 14 years. I don’t think he has dexterity but he always advancing. He is first firing at his own kiln was in 1978. The debut was sensational for me. He succeeded the miracle style of Mr. Shuroku Harada. But not only that. He progresses steadily.
