Gaku Nakane Bowl 5


Dimensions: H 8cm x Ø 24cm

Materials: Shigaraki clay 

Method:  Hand-thrown

Care: Not watertight. To clean dust lightly with a dry cloth 



This organic, asymmetrical bowl utilises Nakane’s signature crackled technique, achieved by layering two varieties of clay. Deeply rooted in nature his practice evokes the black vein-like markings of cracked eggshells or rivulets of water. This shallow, pure, sculptural bowl is exquisitely crafted.

About the Artist

Combining expressive silhouettes with intricate surfaces, Gaku Nakane explores the ambiguities of boundaries between the handmade and the naturally formed. Nakane is deeply moved by the landscape surrounding his idyllic countryside home in the Shiga prefecture. His works exhibit a sustained meditation on the palettes and textures of nature, observing with heightened perception the surfaces within the landscape.
