"It's about never compromising. Sometimes you need to take the time to go the full distance to achieve the best results. That is creaftsmanship." Hiroyuki Agani
An NHK World TV program called "Design Talks" featured Kumamoto Prefecture artists in Japan. One of the segments focused on Hiroyuki Agani, a twelfth generation pottery artist creating works in celedon with white clay inlay, called Yatsushiro ware (or Koda ware).
The artist, while explaining the history of Yatsushiro pottery, brought out a large book of designs dating from the 1800s, that was filled with drawings on large sheets of washi / paper.
Many of the same designs are produced today, along with more contemporary designs inspired by these original patterns by younger generation artists.
Google Arts and Culture in Association with Kyoto Women's University has created a beautiful slide show on Yatsushiro Ware and featured the striking design sketch shown below on Japanese washi / paper (sometimes erroneously called "rice paper)
