The making of...

With korogashi, or "knocked over" pieces, pottery pieces are placed on their side on the kiln floor during firing, where the heat and temperature are the highest and most mercurial. This kiln placement is volatile; the few pieces emerge boast marvelous "kiln mutations" such as horizontal glassy traces of ash and dusty shadows of the firing supports.
