This piece was crafted using an anagama kiln, a traditional furnace where wood is burned slowly over an extended period. The Taura Izumi Kiln, a collaborative project involving numerous artisans, is a full-scale anagama kiln established in 2020 within the grounds of the Yokosuka Artists' Village, "YOKOSUKA ART VALLEY HIRAKU." The kiln uses wood from sustainably managed forests in Yokosuka and gradually raises the temperature to between 1,200 and 1,300 degrees Celsius over several days to fire the ceramics. The ash from the firewood naturally adheres to the ceramic piece, providing a glaze, while the unique markings from the flames add a depth and richness exclusive to anagama-fired creations.
If you apply too much force, it will break. Please be careful not to get injured by broken pieces.
