What is Installation?

Tetsunori Kawana (Master Instructor of the HQ)

Create your own original ceramic nagerire vase- Enjoy a shade of clay

Hirotaka Tobimatsu (ceramic artist)

Content of class: Various coloured clays are placed on a flattened black clay to create a nageire vase from a single piece of clay. The patterns, which sometimes tend to be artificial, are deflated, overlapped and stretched to create unexpected and mysterious patterns. Create your own unique vase.(the photo left is an image.)

Venue: classroom
Capacity: 36

*After the workshop, your work will be fired in a kiln. The completed work will then be picked up at the HQ or sent to you.( Additional shipping costs apply.)

Create your own original iron vase from iron pipes and rods!

Noboru Yokozawa (Sogetsu Atelier staff/Iron vase creator)

Have you ever processed iron or created your own iron vase? If not, this is a great opportunity.

By hammering and bending iron pipes and rods which are set in a furnace, you can learn the characteristic of iron first hand. The goal is to create an iron vase that stands on its own, even without flowers in it. (the photo left is an image.)

Venue: Sogetsu atelier studio
Capacity: 20
