About Takashi Ichihara

I work with stoneware clay fired to a very high temperature. Firing is the most important process of my work because that makes the distinctive color and texture. Wood ash is my favorite material to create glazes, but it is mysterious. Many of my pieces are wheel thrown and slab work together and the final forms are sculpted by wooden tools. I am challenged to create new images of functional stoneware.
