About the artwork

The work was created on a base of Shigaraki red clay with white clay dashingly inlayed on it. Glost firing was done after the transparent glazing on the white clay, and then overglazed decoration, e.g., gold, was done three to four times. The contrast between the unglazed red earth and the multicolored overglaze painting is beautiful. Tiny ripples were brought to the surface of the work by the movement of the clay, after the tatara shape forming stage of the artist’s original. The work is therefore named “Surface wave.” The combination of the waves creates big wavy images.
