Yasushi Fujihira’s Silver Tea Bowl contains a very different kind of aesthetic to that of his fathers.
The high grog content of the clay catches the glaze quite nicely, creating differences in the surface, adding a sense of wear.
The piece was hand built and the form was further smoothed out with sandpaper to create the perfect shape.
A surprise is that this tea bowl has a red clay body! You can see that it peeks out through the silver surface and creates a nice accent of color.
With a silver palladium glazing, Fujihira’s tea bowl adds a more contemporary approach to the ceramics.
