Impermanence Gold Glaze Ceramic Earring
Miki Furuhata values the creation and use of glazes on her ceramic works. Since the ideal glaze colour may not be produced every time, she has to take experiments repeatedly on glaze creation. The “layering” of glaze colour is a significant theme in all Furuhata’s works. This is inspired by the traditional Japanese ceremonial robe, the “Kimono no Juunihitoe”. The Juunihitoe, literally means "the twelve layers”, was the style of formal court dress worn by members of the Imperial House of Japan. The use of glaze colour in each layer is different, yet each layer overlaps, fits with each other and together facilitates a harmonious finish of a ceramic piece.
