"Kakuheki-no-To" (Bulkhead Ceramics)

Encouragement Prizes

Basically, electric wheel throwing is a method of forming round-shaped objects. Using the method involving some limitations, I created an object using the motif of something which exists in nature and has two sides: inside and outside. Towards the organic motif, I lightly grinded parts of the rounded surface either horizontally or vertically, taking care to prevent the work from appearing too “eloquent.”
