Artists selection: Japanese Pottery

YŌNOBI represents artists from all over the world. Our selection of Japanese pottery comprises both hereditary Japanese artists, and artists incorporating the techniques and style of traditional Japanese ceramic works.

Hasami Porcelain 

Imported from Hasami in the Nagasaki Prefecture our collaboration of original Hasami porcelain has a simple and modern take on Japanese ceramic artwork. Functionality is key to Hasami’s work. Every piece is designed to enhance the usability of the kitchen space. It is easy to stack and each item can serve multiple functions by using plates as lids or serving platters. 

Puebco

The reuse of materials and design is central to the pottery by Puebco. This is directly reflected in the finished products. Even though the pottery is newly created, the final result has the same visual characteristics as antiques ceramic wares. Based in Tokyo Puebco makes their Ceramic Laboratory Ware using old pottery techniques that have been unchanged for the past 60 years. 

Ryuji Iwasaki

With these beautiful hand-thrown Japanese ceramics no single piece is the same. Japanese artist Iwasaki is most famous for his glazing techniques, use of detail and variety of colors. The use of bright colors, changing hues and dripping glazing for each piece of pottery makes Iwasaki’s art most extraordinary and visually compelling. 

Robynn Storgaard

The ideals and techniques of Japanese ceramics artwork are most prominent regarding the Japanese pottery by Robynn Storgaard. In spite of being based in Denmark, the Japanese ideals of Wabi-sabi are clearly visible in the simple sculptings and quiet beauty of her pottery. 

The YŌNOBI philosophy of Wabi-Sabi

Wabi-Sabi connects the ceramic artistry throughout YŌNOBI’s online shopping selection. Originating from Japan, this philosophy offers more than a minimalistic take on reality. 

Wabi-sabi finds perfection in the imperfections of life. Making visible ‘errors’ and worn aesthetics, finding both comfort and fulfillment in mistakes. This is clearly emphasized in the ‘Wabi’ aspects of our artwork. 

‘Sabi’ on the other hand relates deeply to the aspect of time. Just like the copper roofs of Copenhagen turns green over time due to ionization, so does our ceramic artwork change appearance over time. 

Maybe you will one day notice a small chip in a cup or the sun's effect on the colors of the ceramic surface. But that is the beauty. Nothing stays the same forever. And that makes it worth appreciating. 

How to identify Japanese pottery

If you are on the hunt for traditional Japanese ceramics, a good idea is to look for the original markings of the porcelain. Traditional pottery is marked with original Japanese signs called, kanji, holding information on the origin place of production, production year, name of the potter and even decorator identity. 

If you are not familiar with interpreting Japanese pottery marks, you can consult a professional china expert or use online resources to help you translate the information.
