Wood fire fascination – Japanese aesthetics in pottery
Design Schau! Speech Partnerregion
Marienplatz 8, 84028 Landshut
Ceramic Collector Rudolf Strasser takes you on a journey to get to know the design and firing technique of japanese ceramics!
In ancient times, pottery was burned in open fire. Today, electric or gas-fired kilns offer a controlled firing process. In Asia, special wood-firing techniques based on the experience gathered over generations have remained until the present. The ashes arising from the wood fire alight on the surface of the ceramic objects, thereby generating particularly appealing aesthetics. This technique, which is complex and risky but also fascinating, is taught exclusively at Keramikschule Landshut. Ceramic collector and Japan expert Rudolf Strasser provides insight in his lecture.
