The world of Satoshi Uetake

I
 thought about changing soil and glaze when I completely turned the kiln into an electric furnace about 10 years ago.

In deciding, I daredly imposed constraints. The first was to use local soil, the second was to make a work baked in electric furnace.

Currently I use traditional glazes such as White Haggy and Brown White with Kasama feldspar and branch Ash to make practical vessels.

Meanwhile, the scraped vermicelli-colored flower vases are made from hard-tightened ceramics of Kasama soil. 

It is my tribute to the flaming pottery made in the Jomon period, a work that imaged nature and the weather.

 

Scratching off is a laborious work, but I feel like I'm pulling out a pattern from the vessel.

I have been independent as a pottery artist and 30 years have passed and I have made a huge number of pottery to the world. I feel a gratitude and also some kind of fear today.

 

He is making "vessel" with scraping and coloring technique and also produces tiles such as ceramic walls and sidewalks.
