Japanese ceramics - Jan Kollwitz

In his workshop in Cismar (Schleswig-Holstein)
Jan Kollwitz creates ceramic works
using a traditional Japanese technique.
Since 1988, he has been firing his pieces
in an original, wood-fired anagama kiln.

Colour and surface effects develop on the
unglazed ceramics during the four-day firing process.
In the heat, fly ash fuses on the vessels to form
a natural glaze. Smoke, flames and embers
leave their trace as grey, red and deep-blue tones.
