  • Klin effects

    Kiln effects (yōhen) is a term that describes a wide variety of spontaneous expressions produced by the interaction of the kiln atmosphere and the surface of the vessel during firing, including oxidation and reduction effects. The cracks, flashing patterns, and natural ash glaze effects on unglazed wares such as Bizen and Shigaraki are famous examples of kiln effects.

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.
