Yakishime Yohen (high-fired kiln mutation) is a technique where the clay base is not glazed and patterns are made by firing inside the kiln. I try to make a new kind of high-fired ceramics thinking what kind of pottery I can make with clay and fire. I want to pursue the strength, mystery, and possiblities of clay.
