I've put together a rather short slideshow video of a kurinuki style Hagi chawan by Kaneta Masanao. Rather well known in the West, Masanao is a master of looking in to a block of clay and sculpting, carving and hacking out wonderful objects and vessels that add yet another dimension to the Hagi tradition. Each and every pot has a distinct character while being related in broad terms to other pots of the same technique, it is this uniqueness and quality that draws one into the world of Kaneta Masanao and hopefully this video will convey his expressive kurinuki technique.
