起源 A New Beginning

Japanese pottery has captivated the hearts of collectors the world over for various reasons.

Many are aesthetic ones.

Whether it be the Mingei aesthetic of the Unknown Craftsman of Yanagi Soetsu, or the Wabi-Sabi Way of Tea austerity of Sen-no-Rikyu, Japanese beauty is far from the bombastical. Rather, as the philosopher Immanuel Kant describes in his writings on aesthetics, true beauty is sublime, subtle, and deep. The same can be said for Japanese aesthetics.

Such words can also be used to describe the works of Ken Mihara 三原研(1958 -). His works are rich in sublime textures, with subtle tones of blue and grey encompassing crisp forms inspired by ancient metalworks and pottery. The works capture the winds of the ancients, and undoubtedly embody the spirit of a quiet and mysterious potter.

With numerous awards such as the Grand Prix at the Cha-no-yu-no-Zokei Exhibition (Forms for the Tea Ceremony) to his name,
Mihara has been creating buzz not only in Japan but in Europe and the United States. His fame is only to rise.

As mentioned previously, Toku Art and Yufuku will be holding his solo exhibition from June 7th to the 16th at Yufuku Gallery. We hope you catch a glimpse of his works. If unable to visit, please stay tuned for more uploads of his works on these pages or from the pages of Yufuku
