Here is a rather short, but interesting video of Kohyama Yasuhisa faceting (mentori) one of his “wind“ (kaze) objects in his Iori-gama studio near Shigaraki. As you can see, he is rather well versed at doing this, his cuts are intuitive and direct. The outcome is wonderful and creates a great keshiki after they are fired.
(This video is not of the highest quality as it was converted from VHS video to a digital video file by me. It was originally taken in the spring of 1993 while I was working with Kohyama-sensei.)
