We will hold an exhibition of Minami Samejima ceramic works.The theme of created these works is “Sprouts of rice”. She is a ceramist based in Tajimicity-Gifu. She doesn’t apply any glaze to her work, instead, she uses the process of carbonized firing. During this process she sinks her objects in the ash of rice husks, this creates a natural dark charcoal tone along with a glaze to seal each piece. These rice husks collected from her parent’s rice farm. She helped with farming and eat these rice everyday, and she use there rice husks for works. It’s her ideal of life and sustainable life cycle of Minami’s production reflects her philosophy of creations. It’s the season of rice planting in Japan.

International shipping available.
