Kazunori Ohnaka’s Tea Ware Solo Exhibition
@jiemocraft 介末Art&Craft Gallery
Graphic designer @eve_yin
Among Japanese ceramic artists who interpret the “incompletion, haze and depth” to the extreme, Kazunori Ohnaka can be regarded as one of the best. His works make the newcomers shocked. They use pottery as mould, yet present a rust-like temperament: hard, fragile, stubborn, honest, dark and subtle, like the shimmer from abyss, emitting a simple but profound, timeless charm.
Born in 1971 in the southwestern county of Yamaguchi Prefecture, Kazunori Ohnaka began to study ceramics at the age of 29, and thus digged into it. His creation is relatively slow, and requirements for his works are harsh and detailed. He dismisses them with little dissatisfaction and never compromises. Many of his works are inspired by Japanese antique props and religious artworks, thus presenting an ancient sense of age.
This exhibition will show X pieces of Kazunori Ohnaka’s latest tea ware works, including teapot, katakuchi(片口), tea jar, pot saucer, flower vessel, portrait sculpture, pottery painting, etc. We also invited Japanese tea artist Fuji Bana to our exhibition on the first day. She will present these works with the form of “Tea ceremony in a Gallery”, interpret the collision and fusion between new and old.
