Koki Ohara

I use the nunozome technique to decorate the vessel using nonwoven fabric cut into the shapes of the motif and soaking the pigment through the fabric onto the ceramic base. This technique creates blurry lines and shadings that cannot be created when decorating with a brush. There is also a feeling of transparency when the motifs overlap. In my artwork "Flow", I made use of the natural flow of the glaze.
