At a climbing kiln in a mountain, the “potter” puts ash and a spell on his artworks.
KANO Takao has a climbing kiln in Minamiyamashiromura Village, Kyoto, and fires ceramics in it twice a year, spring and autumn. This exhibition is exactly the opportunity to see the pieces fired in the latest firing.
How his works are fired changes a lot, depending on how flames are sent around them. It is the true pleasure of climbing kiln dealing with nature that we cannot often go as planned.
In this time, KANO Takao is making a lot of pots.
We cannot predict how his works, covered by ash in a kiln, would be completed. That's why the “potter” is waiting for the moment the works would be put a spell on in a kiln.
The door of the kiln is about to be open!
