Kokusai Kaki (黒彩花器)
This is the Hagi ware crafted by OKADA, Yasushi (岡田泰).
Irons and coppers are mixed by many kinds of metallic oxide and he put ashes glaze after he painted them on the body.
There is a shade created by black color and the jar becomes special character.
With three corners, some kind of power may be felt around the mouth.

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