An open studio with ceramic artist Terry Hagiwara.
“Let my pieces speak to you.” Hear anything?
“He finds beauty in anything almost symmetric (or organized) but with its symmetry slightly broken (or with a hint of chaos). Or, he tries to find some kind of relation (a physicist by education) among wonton appearance. He appreciates controlled behavior of free and spontaneous fluidity.
He works with high-fire stoneware, but more often with raku firing. With raku firing, he uses glazes, whether metallic copper or crackle white, in simple geometric patterns. It is a challenge to fill the closed surface of a vessel with rhythmical patterns.”
