Yasushisa Kohyama: Born, Not Made

Officine Saffi, Via Aurelio Saffi 7, 20123, Milan, Italy

Officine Saffi presents the first solo show in Italy by Yasushisa Kohyama: “Born, Not Made“.

The exhibition presents eighteen new pieces that encapsulate the approach that the artist has developed over the whole of his career. Works that celebrate the history of Japanese ceramics, with a modernist interpretation of the sculptural composition. In fact, Kohyama is one of the master ceramists who rebelled against certain doctrines of form and moved towards abstraction, influenced by Western avant-garde currents.

His sculptures are built using raw clay sourced in the Shigaraki hills. They are fired in Anagama wood-fired kilns of ancient tradition, during which the flames create shades of colour, flashes of light, imprints, and graphic motifs on the surfaces.
