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.
