Takeshi Yasuda

There is an almost liquid, both in the shapes and decoration, of Takeshi Yasuda’s pots. Look at their broad rims and curving lips, the thickly pulled handles and the oily runs and pools of glaze. With their loose throwing marks and dented and altered surfaces, these pieces seem malleable and plastic, as if left unfixed by the process of firing. Yasuda looks to the far East with an independent and expansive abstract eye and a real ability to harness the mysteries of ‘mud and water.’
