SEI HOSHINO

BIZEN

" Baked in a big jar"

Fri.19.Oct. - Sun.28.Oct., 2018

Tori Yoshino tea bowl

Hundred years ago the potters in Bizen baked small pieces in a big Jar. The pieces were wrapped with dried rice straws to prevent from sticking. Then some red lines emerged on the pottery and people called them "HIDASUKI"(red-line decoration).

Mr. Sei Hoshino learned under Mr. Togaku Mori. Their style is minimal and beautiful. Their big kilns give fine and gentle ash-shadows on the work. As Sei Hoshino is also good at making big jars like his teacher, we suggested him to bake his work in the traditional way. Yes. Baking smaller pieces in a big jar.

We are going to show BIZEN wares and the big jar that was the baking case for them.
