This series created by Arita ware ceramic artist Yukari Nishida during her stay in Italy, was inspired by the 20th-century Italian painter and sculptor Alberto Burri. The series is influenced by the concepts of "cracks" and "texture." By combining the Japanese notion of "beauty in imperfection" as introduced by Wabi Sabi with a contemporary twist, this concept presents a distinctive technique known as "Modern Wabi Sabi." The texture and simple form of the pieces showcase a stylish aesthetic while preserving the natural feel of the materials, without being overly earthy.
