to my website.
I am Akio Nukaga, Kasama's ceramic artist.
I am mainly producing dishes/tableware and flower vases of
(iron glaze)、and HAKUJI.I
work hard at making simple shaped and heart warming textured
bowls that I am making have an original and unique texture
feeling that is created SABIKOHIKI
and GOMAKOHIKI in the
kind of KOHIKI.SABIKOHIKI
was given its name since red small spots that express
tastefully austere like an iron rust. Also,
GOMAKOHIKI was since the iron powder in the
foundation appears to be goma (sesame). Moreover, through
I am looking for various ways to express the clay.HAKUJI
is used semi-porcelain clay for base and is made a bit thicker.
Essentially, I aim at working towards creating simple designs.
Please enjoy my art pieces on this website.
I would like to add that Kasama, where I live, is 30 minutes
from Mashiko city by car. Although it is a small area, it
is a prominent place of production for ceramics, and probably
there are 200 to 300 ceramic artists. Annually, from 5/1 through
5/5, all ceramic artists from this area gather in a festival
called "HIMATSURI". Please
visit us if you have any chance.
I am very apologetic that this website does not accept orders
for ceramics pieces. Thank you for your understanding.
