    DescriptionYasuhisa Kohyama's masterly ceramics are inspired by the ancient Jomon and Yayoi ceramics of Japan. Using the distinctive Shigaraki clay and a wood-firing anagama kiln, he has created modern ceramic vessels and sculpture, which are vigorous and new, but timeless in their beauty. Kohyama cuts large blocks of solid clay into asymmetrical forms with a distinctive, rough surface. The clay, with its nuggets of feldspar, creates a tactile quality not often seen in contemporary work. No glazes are used, but the wood ash and the placement in the kiln produce an extraordinary array of colours and shading on the surface. Kohyama's works are owned by leading museums worldwide, including the Museum fur Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg; the Musee National de Ceramique, Sevres; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
