Shadows of flame exhume the granular qualities of the clay on this superb Vessel by Mihara Ken enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Sekki Kaki unglazed Flower Vessel. The entire work is in soft colors, like the autumn leaves changing in Kyoto right now , exuding a very powerful “Wa” sense of harmony. The folded form derives from the aesthetics of paper origami, while its striations and texture evoke the mountainous ravines and rock surfaces of the artist environment.
