NAOTO YANO

KARATSU

Sandstone

" OO-BUKU KO-BUKU"

(big bowls, small bowls)

Fri.16.Nov. - Sun.25.Nov., 2018

Tori Yoshino tea bowl

 

Karatsu ware was originally made by some potters from Korea. Though they were good at making celadon ware, they couldn't find out good kaolinite for celadon in Japan. Lately some articles reported the old KARATSU ware was made from powdered sand stones. Naoto Yano picked up three sorts of sand stone for this exhibition to show you the beauty of old KARATSU. KISHIDAKE, MATSUURA and HIRADO. MADARA KARATSU style with YOSHINOTANI sandstone in KISHIDAKE, and simple glazed ones with YUKIAINO sandstone(MATSUURA) and HATATSU sandstone(HIRADO).

I named this exhibition "OO-BUKU KO-BUKU" because I wanted to show Karatsu bowls which range in size from large to small.
As Karatsu bowls are usually smaller than other ones, I asked Naoto Yano to make some larger bowls for the exhibition.
Yano said. " I agree. The old KARATSU tea bowl named AKINOYO( autumn night ) in IDEMITSU museum is also large."
Eventually we can introduce some larger tea bowls in this show.

Very simple and stoic.
