Description

This elegant vase by Wada Tōzan is wood fired at Ōizumi-gama in the haikaburi (lit. "ash covered") technique.  It was placed around the ash pit of the kiln and, at a temperature of 1,250°C (2,300°F), blasted with successive waves of red pine and cedar embers, each one adding another layer of texture and color.  The fired side of the vase is a warm collage of ocher speckles and embers now frozen in time.  The rear, in contrast, retains the soft quality of the ash slip.

What arose from the ashes is a piece imbued with both the raw, unrefined dynamics of the kiln and the quiet austerity of the Zen aesthetic.  It can accommodate simple arrangements of long-stemmed flowers - or nothing at all.
