Yasuhisa Kohyama anagama



Yasuhisa Kohyama sculpture - William Wilkins painting

Yasuhisa Kohyama London Exhibition 2017

Yasuhisa Kohyama’s latest exhibition comprises 28 ceramics by Yasuhisa Kohyama and four paintings of Kohyama’s work by William Wilkins and is running till 30th November, 2017 at Erskine, Hall & Coe Gallery. Details here


Kohyama has played a very unique and significant role in reviving the use of the traditional Japanese ‘anagama’ wood firing kiln, as he was the first potter in Shigaraki to build such a kiln since the Middle Ages. He is also a contemporary master of the ancient practice of Sueki, a method that originated in southern China and which accounts for his unglazed yet glassy surface textures. His works are inspired by ancient Japanese Shigaraki, Jomon and Yayoi ceramics, and are collected internationally.

Yasuhisa Kohyama was born in 1936 in Shigaraki, a historically vital ceramics production centre in Japan. Kohyama was fifteen years old when he became employed by one of the largest ceramic factories in Shigaraki, Oumi Kagaku Touki. From 1958 until 1960, he took evening classes at a vocational training school, where he was taught basic techniques such as glazing and throwing on a potter’s wheel. A well-known ceramicist designer, Sakuzo Hineno, visited the factory in 1955 while he was working under a government scheme to improve the quality and originality of the ceramic arts in Japan. Following several workshops, Kohyama asked Hineno about being coached individually and was honoured by becoming an apprentice, specializing in tableware.

“Every time I fire, I’ve come to recognize that I am in Nature; I am a small part of Nature. Intently I watch Nature over and over again; working with clay, inspired by Nature,
I am free to allow creation to happen, approaching the experience as the ancients did.”

Dreamscapes in the arts


Every night when we sleep, we are reminded that there is more to our consciousness then what we perceive with our real time perception. During sleep a totally random menu of involuntary dreamscapes gets served up, presenting dream vistas that aren’t locked into a linear time frame and can shift rapidly. Maybe our imagination gets revitalized during sleep, being stimulated by forms and imagery not confined to the normal rules of matter and construct, and act as stimuli to discover greater possibilities. Dreams can be vague and confusing, while at other times extremely lucid. They can act as a vehicle for invention and inspiration and be doorways to spiritual experiences. Too much dreaming can be exhaustive, while in other instances dreams can act as a release and be healing.

In art, otherworldly, nebulous and the surreal are all employed to create the vague ambience of dreams and this dimension grants the license to express the quirky and odd. Impressionistic paintings usually conjure a dreamlike feeling and I’ve included art from Elena Markova for her captivating ethereal vistas. The random, disjointed images of surrealist art also alludes to the world of dreams and I’ve included a few images from the photographer Jerry Uelsmann for his imaginative works. The dreamy lighting of Maxfield Parish makes him a natural inclusion. Also added are the mystical Australian indigenous paintings, channeled from the Dreamtime, and originally serving as a conduit to the subconscious. Other dream related art pieces are also in the mix.

Alice Federico’s pottery whimsy


Alice Federico footed-vase wabi sabi

Twin handled footed vase – Alice Federico



Alice Federico adheres to forms that tend to abandon pure symmetry and are slightly askew, while maintaining the grandeur of  tall and stately classical shapes. Large and playful handles, extended lips, unpredictable folds and cascading ribbon handles add to the character of her pottery art. Her coarse surface textures and faded glazes manifest the allure of an artifact from antiquity weathered by time. Merging the appearance of functional and sculptural with the innate gracefulness of the traditional pottery forms elevates the charm of her pottery art. She indulges a sense of playfulness that was instilled in her by her first teacher, Rita Marlier, to create expressive, whimsical, animated pieces which are pulled, twisted and wrapped into curious shapes. Sculptural in emphasis, but still posing a relationship to the vessel, the pot form.
Historical pots have always had an influence on her work, including Chinese Sung ware, Greek vases, and Italian folk work. It comes as no surprise to learn that she trained as a historian at Hollins University (1967), before doing her MFA in ceramics from East Carolina University (1977), as well as a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute (1983). Sometimes she uses anagama Japanese-style wood-fired kilns in Montana for her flamboyant pottery wares.

I’ve added some pottery from Linda Hoffhines as she also creates forms that ooze character and have spontaneous, colourful shapes and bold textures that project attitude, whimsy and humor.

Linda Hoffhines, uses the vessel  “as a starting point,” she says, “but most of them end up intentionally unusable. I`ll start off with a regular pot, then I can`t resist putting a bunch of glazed shards in it.” “From Minoan to Italian pottery, through the eons, I’ve always liked the idea of making pottery and then decorating it a lot more than you have to.”* Hoffhines, obtained a master’s of fine arts in ceramics at Ohio State University

Dan mask detour


In 1907, Picasso’s fortuitous wrong turn at the Musée d’Ethnographie in Paris, led him to the sacred Dan masks of West Africa, which had a profound influence on his artistic vision. He later stated that ‘Painting isn’t an aesthetic operation,’ ‘It is a way of seizing the power by giving form to our terrors as well as our desires. Men had made these masks and other objects for a sacred purpose, a magic purpose, as a kind of mediation between themselves and the unknown hostile forces, in order to overcome their fear and horror by giving it an image. When I came to that realisation, I knew I had found my way.’ This was the same year he developed the revolutionary Cubist art along with George Braques and was one of the first forms of abstract art in the West. Braque declared ‘Scientific perspective is nothing but eye-fooling illusionism,’ , ‘a bad trick which makes it impossible for an artist to convey a full experience of space.’
Preceding this was Cezanne’s abandonment of the tradition of perspective drawing and concern for the reflection of reality, which had encouraged other artists to consider the  expression of the abstract. For the early abstractionists like Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Alexander Archipenko, Juan Gris and Joan Miro, their abstract art also clearly implied an expression of abstract ideas concerning the spiritual, the subconscious, and the contentious.

Cubism originated in France but spread across Europe and integrated with the artistic consciousness of several countries. It was a poignant influence on Futurism in Italy, Vorticism in England, Suprematism and Constructivism in Russia, and Expressionism in Germany. The Cubists wanted to make pictures that reached beyond the rigid geometry of perspective, as an image drawn from a fixed position, that was limted by a frozen conclusion. The Cubists challenged conventional forms of visual representation with a more dynamic presentation of an omni perspective. The deconstruction of visual conventions paved the way for the emergence of a new artistic language. Cubism was the first abstract style of modern art. The manipulation of non naturalistic colors and bold brushwork by the Fauvists and in Orphism also added to the growth of abstraction at the turn of the Twentieth century.

Charles Catteau was integrating abstract concepts into his ceramic decorations as early as 1905 while Joan Miro was also applying hand painted abstract motifs to his ceramic pieces. In 1922 Kazimir Malevich and his followers actively spread the ideas of Suprematism at the State Porcelain Factory in Petrograd. As early as 1900, Gallelio Chini was approaching abstracted designs with the Italian ‘Liberty’ (Art Nouveau) movement. Mid century ceramicists were attracted to the freestyle groovy designs of skewed perspective and asymmetrical patterns that contributed to defining the modernist style. The abstract complexity of the 30’s and 40’s became more simplified in the 50’s and 60’s and in the process became more marketable, which fueled a huge movement of wonderfully original designs on decorative objects, many hand drawn. The aspired freedom of this era manifested in designs of spontaneity and simplified minimalist detail. A large number of artists in the Mid Century adapted to this free expression in pottery styles. Some notable proponents were Guido Gambone, Fratelli Fanciullacci, Gilbert Valentin, F. Carlton Ball, Corrado Cagli, Marcello Fantoni, Roger Capron and Nils Thorsson. Then there was Picasso’s abstract ceramic work at Madoura in the 60’s which attracted many Parisian ceramic artists to Vallauris who added to the proliferation of  modernist ceramic pieces.

Ovoid vase – Henri Matisse – 1907

Matisse wrote, “We move towards serenity through the simplification of ideas and form…….Details lessen the purity of lines, they harm the emotional intensity, and we choose to reject them. It is a question of learning – and perhaps relearning the ‘handwriting’ of lines. The aim of painting is not to reflect history, because this can be found in books. We have a higher conception. Through it, the artist expresses his inner vision.”
