Kodai Ujiie’s White LAcquer Tea Bowl displays a unique color palette that is not used in his previous works of celadon and lacquer. The colors of purple, brown, green, and copper, mix and dance together on the soft, organic, porcelain surface.
The veiny composition feels spontaneous yet organized. The colors seem to flow strategically from the lip of the form to its base. The cracks are light and subtle, giving the piece an atmospheric quality and in return, it reveals a stone-like surface.
