The experimental work of the late Umeo Yamamoto seems to give the viewer the feeling of being thrown into a vortex of questions.
It is a work that gives a glimpse of his temperament as a craftsman or playfulness.

A soft substance that melts better than straw ash flows from above, gathering together due to surface tension and flowing out.
First, it seems that straw ash glaze is applied to the bottom, and another glaze is applied to the legs.
The lower glaze is thin and the upper glaze is thick.
The mouth and bottom of the bowl are dotted with scale-like glazes that are held in place by surface tension.

Perhaps it's the blue one, the candy-like one, and the two-color sprayed glaze.

Seal: Shokeizan

  • About Shokeizan-yaki

    Shokeizan Kiln is said to have been founded as far back as the Bunsei Era. In Shimane Prefecture, the kiln had a 14-stage climbing kiln at the end of a mountain road in the Kohama district of Yunotsu Town, and was one of the oldest Iwami ware kilns.
