Non-Glazed Jar Vase by Toru Hatta.
The beauty of the kiln is revealed in Hatta’s non-glazed works, the surfaces of which are determined by the history of firings that preceded them. When left bare, chemical residues within the kiln form an atmospheric glaze – the resulting works act as psychical archives of the volatile processes undergone in their becoming.

Hand Made in Japan.

Toru Hatta is a powerhouse ceramicist based near Osaka, Japan. His work is a contemporary fusion of Japanese, Korean and Chinese ceramic history, expert craftsmanship and a focus on the spiritual character of clay.
At DEA, we've been admiring and purchasing his work since our first foray to Japan in 2013, and we were fortunate enough to meet him at a Tokyo exhibition in March 2020. We are now excited to introduce his work to Australia.
