Physiologie du Bon Goût

We asked Kazuo Takiguchi to make special marble pattern for the exhibition. It was his experimental work.He indicated Japanese title of this exhibition "HAIHAN-CHIKEN". Literally it meant "a profound perception on the exclusive things". But when I heard the sound of the words, I reminded the political reform (a bloodless revolution) in MEIJI era.  He murmured, " this is a kind of revolution in the history of ceramic art."


He used two kinds of Shigaraki clay. Old Shgaraki and Shinohara crude clay.
The orange part is made of Shinohara crude clay. And white part is elutrated
Old Shigaraki clay. The fine Shigaraki clay shrinks when it baked. The rough
Shinohara clay will not shrink so much. So the marble patern of these clays
shows very interesting view. The burnt surface becomes bumpy.

When he made the first trial piece with these clays,
the bowls are quite all right on the first firing at 800 degrees C.
But on the second firing at over 1200 degrees C the bowls
got cracks and came to pieces. He made firing-stand for each piece
and put the pieces upside down in the kiln.
