abstract ceramics

japanese wall art

my father has been getting increasingly interested in ceramics in the last few years, creating many decorative and functional pieces in his studio and bring them to a local kiln for firing. recently he sent me a package, and in addition to a book he intended to loan was some kind of abstract ceramic object i was instructed to call and ask about.

admittedly, i couldn’t figure out what it was, but his latest interest has been this japanese tradition of wall hangings that are often abstract or simple shapes with a hole or two for displaying objects from nature. i was intrigued at how quickly this thing turned from something i couldn’t figure out into something i’d enjoy using every day. i go on walks every morning, and i regularly collect pink pepper and eucalyptus from the neighborhood, so now i have the perfect place for it. what a nice surprise!
