Put ideas into practice--Tile design and sculpture in Bizen

September 2, 2018

Sculpture

 

For Morgen's sculpture, I found the core thought in Confucian Analects--five constant virtues to be related to five element.


Ren (Benevolence) --Earth

Yi (Righteousness) --Fire

Li (Propriety) --Metal

Zhi (Wisdom) --Water

Xin (Sincerity) --Wood
 

Then Martin and I made the wood supports for the sculpture. For these geometrical form, the making of pottery is more difficult than other material. But at the end we still finish them. It displayed in front of Schizutani School during the pottery festival in Bizen.

Tile Design

 

Because of the limitation of time and budget, I cannot achieve my wall design this year. So I helped Martin to design these six types of tile design. Because the pottery with Hidasuki usually fired in electric kiln, and in the anagama kiln, they would attach each other if piled the tiles up. For the pursuit of the traditional Bizen ware, we have to give up the plan to use the Hidasuki skill and design the tiles based on anagama kiln.

we bought the comb in DAISO and made texture on the surface.

These are the two ways of display.

The process of drawing texture on the tiles is similar to calligraphy or ink painting.
