The presence of the soil itself.

By expressing materials with as little human intervention as possible,

This work gives the impression of a new direction for Yahagi.

From this work and the expression of the soil itself,

I believe that by seeing the process by which pottery is made, which seems to have aged over time, you will be able to get a sense of the full scope of Takahiro Yahagi.

Yahagi's work is

It has the appearance of an antique that has aged over time.

For translucent porcelain skin

Deliberate black makeup

Beautiful pieces with decaying forms.

It is a Western style design

Feel the unique Japanese scenery that only Yahagi can offer,

Rather than looking at a vessel, it feels like looking at a beautiful natural scene or a changing landscape.

Even if you don't know the country or era you were born in

Even if I came across Yahagi's work in a different country or at a different time, I would still pick it up.

Because the white porcelain has many unglazed areas, the character of the piece improves over time, and it will develop its own unique character over time under the care of each owner.

He is a rare creator who creates new pieces that develop beauty over time.

We would love for you to pick up and touch the actual item.

That's the kind of potter he is.

[Handling Information]

Made from fine-grained white porcelain clay.

The artist's intention with unglazed pieces is to create a unique look by gradually coloring them as they are used.

If you want to maintain the white appearance, we recommend washing it as soon as possible after use. If you are concerned about color transfer, please use dish bleach.

The chipped shape is intentional and the product is filed so there are no sharp edges. If chips appear during use, you can continue using the product by polishing it with waterproof paper.
