Shinsaku NAKAZONO

Nakazono’s work is distinguished by an aesthetic approach to colour. He creates subtle gradations in the blending of colours with much depth and nuance using his original glazes. Sometimes the surface are softly frosted and sometimes they have a glossy texture with a mesmerising expressive beauty. The shapes are designed to create a functional beauty, each work delicately thrown to achieve lightness when held in our hands.┬áNakazono’s refined work is the integration of his colour research with repeated glaze tests and his clear vision and unique artistic sense. He never ceases to challenge himself to a new expression.┬áSince Nakazono makes his works elaborately as art pieces rather than products, there are no standard repeated items. Instead, he explores the apposition of colours and shapes which capture his imagination from moment to moment.
