    Ippodo Gallery is pleased to present another series of Magic of the Tea Bowl – Volume 2, an exhibition of tea bowls by seventeen respected artists: Yasushi Fujihira, Hideyuki Fujisawa, Noriyuki Furutani, Hiroshi Goseki, Tomoyuki Hoshino, Morimistu Hosokawa, Takeshi Imaizumi, Koichiro Isezaki, Yukiya Izumita, Tsubusa Kato, Kohei Nakamura, Mokichi Otsuka, Kai Tsujimura, Shiro Tsujimura, Yui Tsujimura, Koichi Uchida, and Kodai Ujiie.

     

    When you place a tea bowl in the palm of one's hand, all five senses become immediately activated. With your ability to feel the shape of the bowl and see the colors that transform in front of you, time and space disappear so that your soul can find respite from the ordinary day to day and feel the extraordinary power a tea bowl can offer.  

     

    Last year during the midst of the pandemic, Ippodo Gallery filled the void of our visitors with over one hundred tea bowls, which shined like the stars in the sky and kept our bond with each other from a distance. It became one of the most successful exhibits, so we are delighted to announce a sequel exhibition to continue the connection of the potter to the viewer. 

     

    This time, the gallery will feature a Japanese tea house designed by Shigeru Uchida. The architectural simplicity and refinement embody the spirit of the tea ceremony, offering a temporary space to escape from the complexities of daily life. The soft natural materials already evident in the construction of the teahouse echo in the additional accessories used for the tea ceremony, whether lacquer tea caddies, bamboo tea scoops, or fresh flowers amongst the ceramic art. The combination of our artists celebrates the spirit of circumspection and Japanese tea culture combined with true artistry. 

     

    We invite you to view our most recent tea bowl collection with exhibiting artist:

    Tea Bowl - (C24225)

    Yasushi Fujihira's (1963) work takes after his late father, Shin Fujihira. Yasushi's tea bowls are unique. The gold and silver coats take his work to another level. As most of his work uses rich, high silica content glazes, his work oozes attention and creates illustrious surfaces. His results are refreshingly individual and contemporary.

    Noriyuki Furutani (1984) graduated from the Kyoto Saga University of Arts in 2005. Two years later, he apprenticed under Takashi Nakazato, making ceramics at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado here in the United States. Currently residing in Shigaraki, Tenmoku Tea Bowls are his signature work. The hare's fur and oil spot glazing is thickly applied over a simple ceramic silhouette to create a beautiful, dark composition. The tenmoku glaze is incredibly sought after due to its complex technique and historical significance in central Asia, and Furutani has perfected his tenmoku formula.

    Hiroshi Goseki

    Tea bowl - (C24248NP)

    Hiroshi Goseki (1988) studied Bizenware under Living National Treasure Jun Isezaki, and as a result, his pieces reflect the spirit and spontaneous nature of a Bizen firing. The building method used is a unique combination of hand-building and wheel throwing, producing undulating edges and striking silhouettes. Through the wood fire, his pieces retain incredible colors of blue and red.

    Tomoyuki Hoshino (1976) entered Kyoto Prefectural Ceramic School in 2005. He was apprenticed to prominent Kyoto ceramic artist Yuuichi Ikai, for two years, after which he launched his own kiln in 2007. The colored cotton candy pink porcelain is coated with a translucent sugar-like white glaze layer. Hoshino's take on the tea bowl is youthful and soft, inspired by the silhouettes of dancing women.

    Morimitsu Hosokawa's (1972) ceramic work varies in its visual language. Starting before his renowned father, Morihiro Hosokawa, a former apprentice to Shiro Tsujimura, Morimitsu carefully considers each tea bowl’s surface and how glazes can enhance or hide the surface of the clay.

    Takeshi Imaizumi (1978) majored in Political Science and Economics, but his true passion was making ceramics. While learning from traditional masterpieces from the Song Dynasty in China, Imaizumi’s work combines Tenmoku and Celadon. He experiments with new glaze formulations and firing techniques to create his unique styles.

    Koichiro Isezaki (1974) is the first son of Living National Treasure Jun Isezaki, and also carries on his generational ceramics practice of Bizen ware. While Koichiro Isezaki's pieces are ceramic, they always have a jagged, rugged rock-like feel, as if he chiseled them from stone. His works are profoundly unique yet unified by the Bizen characteristics they each hold. The rich and heavy clay he works with is the best clay his entire family has worked with for generations.

    Yukiya Izumita (1966) began his career training under Gakuho Shimodake in Kokuji-Ware in 1992. Afterward, in 1995, Izumita went on to open his studio in Noda Village, Iwate Prefecture. Tohoku, in Northeast Japan, is known for its very severe weather; because of this Izumita became inspired by the coastal winds and the endurance found in seaside culture. His works contain a signature folding technique.

    Kohei Nakamura (1948) is the third son of the famed potter Baizan Nakamura. After graduating from the sculpture department at the Tama University of Art, he honed his skill with years of practice. Recently he’s channeling the spirits of ancient chawan makers and succeeding in spades. Here are two examples, a large ‘deep-well’ Ido chawan and a very Chojiro-Esque Black Raku.

    Yui Tsujimura (1975) is the elder of two sons of one of the most sought-after potters in Japan, Shiro Tsujimura. He and his brother learned the ceramic fundamentals and discipline from their father. Yui Tsujimura focuses on mastering a traditional technique using unglazed stoneware from early medieval Sue ware, which uses feldspar-rich clay from Shigaraki and Iga. He is known for his elegant use of natural ash glaze from natural pine. The blown ash forms green and blue markings, which appear like crystals in a cave, creating a sense of airiness and breath within his tea bowls.
