Hitoshi Morimoto Shirahana Vase #01

by Hitoshi MORIMOTO

Hitoshi Morimoto’s Bizen works are informed by traditional Japanese ceramics and modernized by a mastery of craft. Their antique silhouettes are crafted from very rare Bizen clay and brought to life in an ancient kiln.

‘Shirahana’ meaning white flower is Hitoshi Morimoto’s collection of pure white Bizen vessels which encompass the naturalness of clean clay. Pieces are fired inside of a Kerosene oven, which removes all ash and flame variants, creating a colorless object that embraces the organic.

About Hitoshi MORIMOTO

Hitoshi Morimoto is a third generation Bizen ceramist whose modern works are inspired by the silhouettes of ancient traditions. The Japanese ceramist who studied sculpture at Tokyo Zokei University, is deeply connected to his craft. His spirit, dedication, and historical nods to the great tradition of Bizen can be seen throughout all of his works, each of which take up to two years to complete.

Visually, these minimalistic Bizen pieces are informed by traditional Japanese ceramics which are then modernized by Morimoto. They are brought to life in an ancient kiln, one of six in the entire country of Japan. Bizen, is a style of ceramics, and an extremely rare form of clay due to the unique soil in the region. It is recognized as an official Japanese heritage.
