陶 翫粋(がんすい) GANSUI... Gallery of contemporary ceramic art




We visited at Tsubusa Kato in Tajimi to pick up his latest work, KISETO pieces.

Mr. Tsubusa Kato was born in Tajimi where where people has a long history of pottery .

When he was a child, he decided not to be a modest artisan, but a creative artist.

He was not enthusiastic to show ordinary vessels with traditional style.

But he is interested in old ceramics and keeps research on old Mino wares.

This bowl is Kato's KISETO.

He said , " It should be better to burn the piece in stronger oxidizing condition...

But the clay and the glaze were sufficient to call this KISETO. "

And that was our conclusion.
