The eternal quest for the perfect glaze

 

Creating a new glaze has been a lifelong passion for Hideaki Miyamura, his newest glaze being a ‘crystalescent’ yohen.

 

Described by Miyamura ..

‘During my 5 year apprenticeship in Japan, my assignment was to develop new glazes, mainly Tenmoku glazes, in a brown-black color with an iridescent quality. At that time, I completed over 10,000 test pieces. The fifth year of my apprenticeship, I discovered the iridescent glaze on a black background which was my original contribution to the art of Yohen Tenmoku.”

“Over the last few years, I have experimented to discover new glazes which combine crystallization with iridescence. I have researched crystal glaze techniques in the United States, Europe, Japan and China. In the long history of crystal glazes, I could find no iridescent crystal glaze. This fueled my ten-year long passion and intent to create an iridescent crystal glaze which has never been made anywhere, at anytime in history. Last year, the newest glaze came out of my kiln. It was the most complicated glaze formula and firing process that I have ever done. I call that newest glaze Yohen Crystal Glaze. Yohen means ‘stars glistening in a night sky’ ” ( see below )

Japanese-born American Hideaki Miyamura has his studio in New Hampshire, USA. Born in 1955 in Niigata, Japan, Miyamura went to study art history at Western Michigan University. After college, he returned to Japan to pursue his interest in ceramics as an apprentice with master potter Shurei Miura in Yamanashi for 5 years where he did some of his glaze research. He is now well known throughout Japan and the United States for his experimental and illustrious glazes, Miyamura’s surfaces possess a stunning and unique iridescent quality. Stemming from the artist’s interest in rare ancient Chinese tea bowl glazes, Miyamura seeks to create glazes that have a three-dimensional quality and convey purity and peacefulness.. He has said, “Harmony and unity are expressions of peace. I aim for my art to provide not only beauty, but also peacefulness. My quest has been not for the perfect form or perfect glaze, but for the mysterious effect that first drew me to this work: the contemplative tranquility evoked through line and light.” The sublime porcelain forms of Miyamura combine simplicity, balance and beauty juxtaposed with dynamic, detailed glazes of depth and refinement.
