Kako Katsumi

I have to thank Australian ceramic artist and blogger Shannon Garson of "Strange Fragments" for turning me onto Japanese artist Kako Katsumi this weekend. "Thank you Shannon!"



I really try to not geek out on details like this... but I'm drooling.

Fantastic...

Kiln porno...

Bare with me on this... I'm still digesting the info I've found on line and unfortunately as accomplished Kako is, there isn't much... Most of theses images and info that I found was pulled from his website and his blog, (Google translator really does read like a haiku when you put Japanese websites through 'em... I like the vague poetic nonsense that comes out.)

Beautiful, beautiful work... we'll be revisiting this...
