Contemporary, Functional Ceramic Art Collection
Takeshi Yasuda makes wheel-thrown pots meant for use. His early work was in stoneware clay glazed with a white slip, with manganese and copper to produce pools of brown and green glaze, to highlight the details of the form and accentuate it. In the late 1990’s he developed his cream-ware, using porcelain clay without any additional colour and subsequently he began to experiment with celadon glazes. Since setting up a second studio in Jingdezhen, China in 2005, he has continued his development of celadon, working with many different varieties of porcelain clay. Most of his pieces are intended for the serving of food, generous dishes, plates and jugs, which encourage the celebration and ritual of a meal.
