HIRO AJIKI

TANG SANCAI in RAKU style

 

Apr.06(Fri) - Apr.15(Sun), 2018

 


Tori Yoshino tea bowl

Hiro Ajiki keeps making tea bowls. He is often inspired by foreign cultures but his style is always UNIQUE.

We have introduced Ajiki's Japanese style, Oriental style and Incan style. And on the coming exhibition we are goin gto show some Chinese style. He burnt the piece at 1100 degree C and to melt the coloring glaze and cooled down to 300 degree C. Then he stopped firing. He would not make the work shrunk. The gentle touch of the clay fits to using it as a tea bowl.

Frankly speaking this is not RAKU or anything. We titled " RAKU style" because the bowl was finger-built. The materials, the shapes and the techniques are quite different from Tang Sancai, too. But it has certain mood of Chinese Tang pottery. I hope you to enjoy his humour and find out the affections to the tea bowls.



 

 

 

HIRO AJKI (b.1948 -) Born in Shimane prefecture.
He mainly makes tea bowls. As he holds and enjoys tea ceremonies in various conditions, his bowls are unique and well-considered.

When he was young, he wanted to be a wandering painter who is roaming around the world, like a troubadour. His spirit has never been bound by a society or a local culture.
