Critic’s Choice | Jim Keeling on Koichiro Isezaki

Watch Jim Keeling from Whichford Pottery as he talks about the work of Koichiro Isezaki. He talks about the respect that Japanese potters have for their materials and the Anagama tradition in Bizen pottery. Keeling shows us how the path of the flame, over a 7 day wood firing, is used to decorate Isezaki’s unglazed pots and how he makes his distinctive ‘collapsed’ pots. We are treated to footage shot earlier this year at Koichiro Isezaki’s studio in Japan by our We Love Clay team.
