TORI YOSHINO

HAGI

DAIDO clay

Fri.11. Jan. - Sun.20.Jan., 2019

Tori Yoshino tea bowl

 

Five or six years ago I found an ivory tea bowl at Yoshino’s atelier. That was a bowl made from only DAIDO clay which is the main material of HAGI ware. 
 Hagi potters usually mixes some clays to develop pinky color what they call BIWA-IRO. 

 I believe the color of KO-HAGI wares  (which were produced in 17 century by SAKA KORAIZAEMON the 1st to the third generation ) should be ivory when the pieces emerged from the kiln. The long term usage made the color turn reddish.  When I asked Mr. Yoshino to made some tea bowls with the DAIDO clay only, he refused because there were not enough amount of DAIDO clay. But since then he tried to find the best design and firing for the clay. In light of the fact that Tori Yoshino has worked for SAKA family for ten years and he has a profound knowledge on Saka’s style, he is the person who can show the traditional spirits and prides.  The fine ivory paste with thin glaze will turn out to be a modern  HAGI tea bowl  that has an air of fresh “KO-HAGI ” taste.
