Kan Kishino’s (1975) ceramic works all have a similar earthy atmosphere. Kan

Kishino studied under Dogyu Fukumori. Working in the heart of Shigaraki, one of the

ancient kilns in Japan, his pieces sing with influence from primarily Yakishime and

Ido styles. Kishino’s ceramics emphasize the spontaneity of a natural firing, bringing

the traditional into the contemporary with a new life.
