Shingo Umano Medium Shallow Bowl
Shingo Umano, a pottery artist from Tokushima, Shikoku island, harnesses the power of local raw soil and natural ash glaze to create unique ceramics. Every piece he crafts is distinctive, a direct result of the natural variations in the materials he uses. The soil lends a sense of place to his creations, while the ash glaze, melting into the clay in the heat of the kiln, brings unexpected beauty to each piece. His work encapsulates the unpredictability and charm of nature, making every pottery item an individual narrative of Shikoku's natural landscape. Through his craftsmanship, Umano illustrates the concept of wabi-sabi: finding beauty in imperfection and transience.
