Description

The eldest son of a renowned porcelain ceramist, Matsuo Jun has been firing his own climbing kiln in the mountains of Saga Prefecture for nearly sixteen years. This monumental work is typical of his preference for unglazed, dark brown stonewares. Matsuo's signature technique is to coat his vessels with white clay and then toss salt into the kiln as it fires. As the salt carbonizes, it creates a copper-like glaze.
