Ricca OKANO x Hiroshi NOMOTO Exhibition
Wachigai : Restaurant & Bar Japanese
April 19(sun)-May 17(sun), 2015
This transitional house, built with typical Kyofu-Machiya (type of architecture design developed in Kyoto) in Edo period, keeps the good old-days ambiance. The name “Wachigai” is taken after the Yago, the traditional name of the house. http://www.wachigai.com/english/top.html
These works are made with semi-porcelain, with copper oxide powder and copper wire put on, burnt in a kiln.
This is an art object with the plates of the ceramic. I made the semi porcelain plates, shake copper oxide (CuO) on the form and add a design to a plate, burnt in a kiln. Then I put several plates, burnt in a kiln it again. This work is a short piece with feeling of strain and a dynamic image. 2015 Group Exhibition (art collection museum/Ueda, Wachigai/Omachi)
