nendo reinterprets raku tea bowls for ‘KICHIZAEMON X’ at sagawa art museum

KICHIZAEMON X introduces five enchanting collections

Via Designboom

“nendo has teamed up with Raku master potter Kichizaemon Jikinyu for ‘KICHIZAEMON X’ exhibition that comprises five captivating collections. Running from September 16, 2022, to March 11, 2023, at the Sagawa Art Museum, Japan, the display includes collaborative works from different artists and artisans, and the result sees a conjunction of colors, textures, materials, and techniques. Each piece is a reinterpretation of traditional Japanese pottery, unfolding different narratives behind it. 

For example, the ‘chuwan’ series represents the passing of time, while the ‘michiwan’ series materializes the internal space of Raku ware. The ‘junwan -chroma-’ is a line of eight ceramic pieces completed by soaking them in ink to separate colors, the ‘junwan -redox-’ takes shape as a collection of three ceramic works fired after absorbing metal, and the ‘jihada’ is an installation piece that compromises five small spaces.
