The current exhibition at Dai Ichi Arts, Ltd., Nature Born: new works from Shigaraki master KOHARA Yasuhiro, will be up until November 13.

Dai Ichi Arts, Ltd has been showing Kohara's work since 1999.  Born in Shigaraki, one of Japan's ancient kiln sites, in 1954, he is self-taught.  He had neither formal schooling in ceramic art nor did he apprentice to a master.  Inspired by the local landscape and the Shigaraki pottery tradition, he uses the grainy clay of the region and glazes ranging in hue from champagne to amber to seafoam green to make spontaneous and self-assured work.
