Description

The surface of Tsujimura Shirō’s jar features a rough texture from grains of feldspar in the clay as well as designs created by wood ash during firing, with an aesthetic result that is in keeping with the Japanese tradition of subdued rusticity known as wabi-sabi. It prompts contemplation of ash, and invites the viewer to consider the endlessly shifting nature of the materials that constitute our lives.
