Haikaburi Hanaire (灰被花入)
This is the Hagi ware crafted by OKADA, Yasushi (岡田泰).
It was placed in front of the door in the climbing kiln, covered with ashes and became Japanese wabi tranquil scene.
White glaze called "shirahagi-yu" and ashes were melted and mixed together.
That's very elegant.

OKADA was majoring in sculpture at Tokyo Zokei University. The soft and peaceful color occured from glaze attracts us thoroughly.
