Description

Produced in Bizen with the local hiyose clay, this expressive bowl possesses a natural form and earthy texture. For bizen ware, the wood-firing process lasts over a week and results in the unpredictable “patterns” of stripes, dots, and alternating colour fields, stunning testaments to the material’s inherent beauty. This piece features rock-grey tones and geological textures that balances historicity with a contemporary flair. 

 

About the Artist

Based in the Bizen area of Okayama, Hiroshi Toyofuku is a ceramicist whose pottery is distinguished by a marbled, stratified surface and angular forms. Bizen has been the centre of Bizen-ware production for over a thousand years and is characterized by unglazed, wood-fired kilns, and firings that last more than a week. Each piece is a testament to the inherent beauty, honesty, and history within Toyofuku’s materials and production methods.
