Where's the Hagi?
I just don't get it; why take one of Japan's greatest Tea potting names and then produce high heels? Golden chawan? And vases that would be censored in today's USA, too erotic some may say. I just don't 'get' Miwa KyusetsuXII, and I'm sure he feels the same about me. Anyway, the man is a genius, that is a given for the shere output and variety of his ceramic art, yet where's the Hagi? Read a column I wrote in the Japan Times some years back http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/fc20031210ry.html or if you're lucky--and brave--enough, go see his current exhibition in Okayama at Tenmaya unitil Dec.11th.
