Yoshihiko Yoshida - the beauty of forest and nature.


Yoshihiko Yoshida - the beauty of forest and nature.

I went an excibition “Yoshihiko Yoshida - The Potter between Mashiko and Mino” at Mashiko Museum of Ceramic Art* in Mashiko.

Yoshihiko Yoshida (吉田喜彦) studied with renowned Mino potter and Living National Treasure Arakawa Toyozo (1894-1985) for 13 years. 

He studied painting at his hight schools days. His pottery is very soft and grace like Japanese traditional painting or "Rinpa"**.

Yoshida lived amid a forest in the hills of Toki City in Gifu Prefecture. I feel his work the beauty of forest and nature. I thought the form of his pottery is like a flower or walnut or coconut.

His potterys are not only beautiful but also good to use.

His work is excibited at Musée Guimet.
