Theme of this piece: Ambient ceramics
Mr. Kanazawa uses the theme of "ambient ceramics" in Amakusa's sea, plants, mountains and rivers, and the atmosphere of the island, expressing the creativity born from the surrounding environment through clay. Expressing the inspiration received from things born from nature.
Similarly, in sake brewing, rice and water are used to create koji, which is then combined to create sake.
In addition, the Komatsu/Kannon-shita area where Nougchi Naohiko sake Institute is located is rich in nature and is surrounded by plants, trees, mountains, and rivers, making sake there, so they felt an affinity for Mr. Kanazawa's works and style, which led them to this collaboration.
Artist Naoki Kanazawa a masterful pottery artist from Amakusa, Kumamoto Prefecture, affiliated with Naohiko Noguchi Research Institute.
