DAI TAKAYAMA(b.1972-)


He polishes colcothar-iron-glazed piece before firing. So the surface is so smooth and comfortable. He often bakes his earthenware on the ground uncovered. After burning he adds URUSHI on them and bakes at 170 degree. The covering prevents earthy smell and water leaking.

His black work is burnt with rice husks. Iron-glazed piece is carbonised and turns into pure black.


A bowl with a sacred bird
Karyobinga in Japanese. Kalaviṅka in Sanscrit.

The kalaviṅka is said to dwell in Buddhist paradise (gokuraku-jōdo, Nirvana).
It sings in an incredibly beautiful voice.

 


 


Tea bowl ... Black glazed piece fired in ANAGAMA kiln.
