The Story

From Jewelry to Tableware -

The Diverse Ceramic Practice of MIKI FURUHATA

 

Miki Furuhata is a young Japanese pottery artist who learned pottery in Kyoto, started her pottery studio in Kanagawa and now moved to Nagano, the hometown where she was born. She engages in creating a variety of ceramic products including tablewares, barware, “ichirinzashi” vases (single flower vase), and jewellery.

 

The form of bird exists in many ceramic works created by Furuhata. Her new table- and drink-ware series continue the theme of bird. The round shape and the bottom stand of these ceramics depicte the characteristics of bird’s body and feet.

 

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.
