Ceramic Vase, unglazed, silicon paint inside the vase to hold the water
Size || W30 x H240 mm
Minami Samejima is based in Gifu. She uses a unique process to fire her pottery, whereby she layers her work into a box called “Saya”, this box is packed with leftover, excess rice husks (chaff) collected from her parent's rice farm.
Minami doesn’t apply any glaze to her work, instead, she uses the process of firing. During this process she sinks her objects in the ash of rice husks, this creates a natural dark charcoal tone along with a glaze to seal each piece. The surface of each object has many tiny air holes, thus it will change over time with age.
The natural and sustainable life cycle of Minami’s production reflects her philosophy of creations. The technique she uses is incredibly personal and unique and is the answer behind the attractive colour and texture to her work.
