Unokawa Kazumasa, born in Nara in 1952, not far from Kyoto, is a master craftsman of Tenmoku pottery. He never had a mentor and let “the clay, the kiln, the fire and na...

Here, the hinted silhouette of a woman seems to be forever taking shape, between past and future, within a timeless space. Unokawa Kazumasa is a master of the rigorous Tenmoku pottery, which quite literally offers glimpses of the cosmos, but he has veered to work more freely on pieces that can better express his poetry as a true artist.
