A dripping glaze expression that lifts the mood
NAOKO HATA CERAMICS mugs are characterized by the dripping look from the mouth and uplifting colors. The dripping glaze is created in the kiln, so no two mugs are alike.
NAOKO HATA CERAMICS is created by Naoko Hata, a ceramic artist from Mie Prefecture. While her works are created using traditional techniques, the textures and colors produced by her unique glaze formulations, which she has researched over and over again, shine through.
The "Melt series" is characterized by the dramatic expressions created by the dripping glaze. Hata says that she was particular about the glaze mixing, "I was researching every day to see if I could create something unique in terms of glaze and color while retaining the texture of the pottery. For a potter, mixing glazes is a process of finding her own recipe. Researching glazes is still part of my life's work." She continues to explore the charm of glazes, for which there is no right answer.
