Kim Hono little bowl

 Japan 

Small bowl 

Materials: ceramics

“His work is energized and bold in his own way. Hono is inspired by Oribe-Yaki, a movement of art expression in pottery created for tea ceremonies lead by Sen Rikyu in the 15th Century.”
.
.
Born in Aichi, Hono studied and worked in Seto City. His work have received a number of awards and have been exhibited in many established galleries and expos around the world. .
In contrast to more widely known modest Japanese ceramic movements, Oribe is very bold and unique, with avant-garde forms and patterns, as can be seen in Kim’s work. It’s as much a piece of art as it is a functional object.

 


 

He creates a full body of new work for each exhibition, producing hundreds of pieces every time in his atelier in Mie prefecture. His workshop is a Kura style building (a traditional Japanese storage house) where he keeps all his archives on shelves from the floor to ceiling - it’s a phenomenal sight.

キムホノさんが陶芸を始めたのは織部との出会い。
自らが進むべき道はやきものにあると決め陶芸家に。
自由な気風と斬新なスタイルが特徴の織部焼に魅了され
それはキムホノさんの作品作りに映し出されている。

キムホノさんの作品は、その一つ一つに魂が宿っているかのような力強さ
とらわれない自由さがありながらも真摯な心を感じる。
それでいて身近に愛着がわく愛おしさもある。
生み出された作品と手にされる方との一期一会の出会い。
手にされた方はそれから器との時間を刻んでゆく。

キムさんは展覧会ごとにすべて新作を発表し
初めての土や釉薬、技法を使うなど
常に新しい挑戦と創造を続けている。
