Occasionally, there are pinholes, swelling of the glaze due to air bubbles generated from the dough, and the effects of ash (yellow sesame, kiln changes, etc.) caused by firing in a wood-fired kiln, changes that cannot be seen in an electric or gas furnace. many too.
It seems that you love this fluctuation.
The combination of soft bluish colors and gentle kiln transformation creates the beauty of wabi.

Morioka's work has many fans in FOOD FOR THOUGHT as a group of works that are gentle yet clear to the core, have a heavy historical weight, and are very nourishing.
