Abstract:

"Yasuhisa Kohyamas (born in 1936) masterly ceramics are inspired by the ancient Shigaraki, Jomon and Yayoi ceramics of Japan. Using the distinctive Shigaraki clay and a wood-firing Anagama kiln, he has created modern ceramic vessels and sculpture, which are vigorous and new, but timeless in their beauty. Kohyamas works are owned by leading museums worldwide. This new publication, featuring important texts, positions Kohyamas oeuvre in the contemporary and historical context of Japanese ceramics and dazzles with superlative photographs of his ceramic sculpture."--Publisher's description.
