Natural ash glaze

Yohen, which translates as changed by the fire/flame or kiln change, refers to changes that happen in the kiln during firing, causing the glaze to run. The build up of ash on the floor of the kiln and the natural glazing process that occurs because of it result in Yohen pots in deep browns, blues & reds.

Referred to as Zogan or Korai Jawan (inlay and reverse inlay). This decorative style goes back to Korea's Koryo Period (935-1392), when pieces would be inlaid with floral and animal depictions.
The design is incised into the body of the piece and filled with clay or slip in a contrasting colour.

Accompanied by a signed, made to measure box
Ken Matsuzaki PortraitKen Matsuzaki was born in 1950 in Tokyo. Growing up Matsuzaki’s life was filled with art and culture and his family’s influence began to show when, around the age of 16, Matsuzaki developed an interest in ceramics. In 1972, after graduating from Tamagawa University’s College of Arts, he began a 3 year apprenticeship with (National Living Treasure) Tatsuzo Shimaoka.

Nearing the end of his apprenticeship Matsuzaki asked Shimaoka if he would consider extending it for another 2 years, whilst he learned to develop his own style, and began creating his own motifs and palette of glazes that he would use for the next 15 years. Today, Matsuzaki has exhibited widely in Japan, America and the UK and his work is held in major galleries worldwide.
