Solo project

Last January, I traveled to Bizen where I created a new series of wood-fired pieces. I spent time with my great friend Toshiaki Shibuta who lent me his workshop for a few days, just enough time to make over 15 pieces. Here is a selection of 4 pieces from this series :

 

1 – Flat sculpture, 25 X 5 X 20.5 CM

2 – Twin MONOLiTHS, 10 X 6 X 12 CM and 10 X 6 X 13 CM

3 – Sake-bottle, Ø 10.5 X H. 10.5 CM

4 – Bowl, Ø 13.5 X H. 8.5 CM

 

  • Materials: local iron-rich stoneware from Bizen
  • Firing: Anagama wood kiln, approx. 1250ºC
