Ceramic Exhibition: Yakishime- Earth Metamorphosis

The Japan Foundation, Toronto

YAKISHIME—Earth Metamorphosis focuses on the yakishime ceramic technique in which unglazed wares are fired at extremely high temperatures of 1,200-1,300˚C. While one of the most basic or primitive means of producing ceramics, yakishime has developed in distinctive directions in Japan, and production has continued unbroken from Japan’s middle ages through the present.
