|Event Location:||Crafts Study Centre, The Surrey Institute of Art and Design|
|Number of Pieces:||60|
Opening Date: 2005-Jan-11
The works in the exhibition explore celadon from this single point of view: the previously untested idea that 'form' can be created by glaze. The investigation necessitated Yasuda to work outside his normal reduction fired iron baring blue/green glaze solutions to develop white opaque and orange/yellow glazes.
Having worked with wheel thrown ceramics for 20 years the new work sought a change of expression in form and he developed the technique of the torn edge to a thrown object, thus producing a natural dynamic to the porcelain form, allowing the qualities of the edge to show through the surface of the thick glaze. The works examined that delicate relationship between 'glaze' and 'body' in a new light.
Resulting from this exhibition was an invitation to give a paper on the History of Celadon at a conference in Munich, Germany and also Kecskmet, at the ICSKH, Hungry. Both events hosted an exhibition of work by Yasuda.
