Katsuki is inspired the beauty of the curves to make this art piece like terra or hill. He expressed the mother nature of "Tanba" (place famous for ceramics) with the pattern like layered earth on this surface. This art piece is fired with charcoal and chaff partially next to it to emphasize its austereness. Katsuki cannot do anything except praying for fire while the kiln is finishing the art piece. So, he deliberates how to put the art pieces in the kiln before fire. With flowers, this art piece is completed as terra which holds them.

Artist Information

Katsuki Ichino

 Katsuki Ichino is the seventh generation of the Ichino family who have been making Tanba ware, one of the "Six Old Kilns of Japan" in the Hyogo prefecture. This pottery originated about 850 years ago at the end of Heian era. In 1926, a Japanese folk art movement called "mingei" was started by Sōetsu Yanagi, a Japanese philosopher, and some of his friends. The idea was to introduce Japanese everyday artwork and craftwork such as pottery, textile, and lacquerware created by anonymous craftsmen to the world as these works had been largely ignored by art history. Yanagi collected 300 works of Tanba ware and wrote a book dedicated to the beauty of Tanba ware. Due to the efforts of Sōetsu Yanagi, the history of Tanba ware as tableware pottery was revived 90 years ago. Katsuki Ichino's efforts to present his new style of pottery applying techniques of Tanba ware as contemporary art will help continue Yanagi's "mingei" movement.
