Naoto Ishii
“Kiln and moon”
New work imformation

Sep 10, 2018 | News 



Heavy rain at last year,

Water accumulated the top of the chimney and it was damaged so i remade it. 

As the shape of the chimney became smart,

The whole firing has changed considerably.

About 3 days of firing, 

A fire rising on the top of the chimney and the moon in the sky were in line.

And then the wind blew and it began to a light rain.

“Is it raining in blessings?”

The feelings of the people who participated in the operation of nature and firing,

It was a moment when it became one.
