Hagi Ware


Profile

OKADA, Yasushi is the son of OKADA, Yuh who is Intangible Cultural Asset as a holder of Hagi Ware Techniques.
He majored in a sculpture at Tokyo Zokei University, and studied ceramics at Kyoto.
Having accumulated experiences, he had gradually improved his skill.
In 2009, his art was accepted in the Japan Traditional Arts Crafts exhibition for the first time, then selected consecutively. His original technique "Tanseiyu" puts modern art into his ceramic with the clay of Hagi.
Seeing his ceramics, gentle mood can be felt spontaneously. Okada kiln is visited by many guests from overseas, not only in Japan.
He makes new Hagi Ware and we look forward to his future development.
