When working as an apparel salesperson in Tokyo, Masaaki Iwasa decided to master the way to make things that were more interesting. At the gallery I stopped by, I was impressed by Bizen ware's virtue, and my interest in Bizen ware increased, and I entered the world of pottery in earnest.
"I want you to feel something through my work, as if I were greatly moved by the virtue of Bizen ware. In order to enjoy the aging of the work, the texture is silver, especially. I try to express it using silver foil. Unlike silver liquids like paint, silver foil can express subtle shades and have a wide range of expression. "
Ceramic lacquerware mainly by Iwasa is made by lacquered with ceramics. For this reason, we will match both the unique texture of the freedom of pottery and the unique texture created by applying lacquer. It is given a silver foil to create a texture.The background of using silver foil, which changes the texture over time, has the desire to be close to life and life.Inspired by bronze vessels excavated locally and made ceramics, etc.Mr. Iwasa values the relationship with the community. For the work created by IwasaThe nostalgic San'in region may have affected it.
