The works of Eijiro Tokunaga capture the pain and pleasure in life vividly through his expressions in glaze and form. The glaze on the surface of the vase is intricately mixed, and the slits which were left opened intentionally, remind us about the imperfections in life and the ease of accepting things as they are. A subtle and organic vessel that adds warmth and texture to your space.

Artist: Eijiro Tokunaga
A ceramic artist who trained in Kyoto and inherited the ‘Tokko kiln’ in Arita, Saga Prefecture. His specialty is carbonized firing and he pursues his own expression using various clay and glazes.
Tokunaga creates a new glaze by reusing refined ashes from the carbonized firing. The process of recycling materials has been passed down for many generations. His ash glaze produces a clear greenish hue, mimicking the shimmering water inside a peaceful lake.
