Leave a comment

当社中では萩焼の人気が高いです。以前このブログでも萩焼について触れました。先日坂田泥華さんによる立派な萩茶碗を拝見する機会がありましたので写真でご紹介します。

Hagi ware is popular in our Shachu, and Hagi ware was previously featured in this blog.  The other day we had an opportunity to view a wonderful Hagi bowl made by Deika Sakata.  Here are some photographs of it.

 

作家さんについて、ウィキべディアによれば:

About the artist, according to Wikipedia (Japanese):

13代坂田泥華(さかた でいか、1915年11月10日 – 2010年2月24日)は山口県長門市深川にて代々継承されている萩焼の伝統名跡名家陶芸家。本名を一平。山口県長門市出身。12代坂田泥華(本名:浩三)の長男。

13th Deika Sakata ( Ippei Sakata, November 10, 1915 – February 24, 2010) was a pottery artist from a distinguished Hagi ware family that carries on this traditional professional name/title in the Fukagawa district, the city of Nagato, Yamaguchi prefecture, where he was born.  He was the eldest son of 12th Deika Sakata ( Ko’uzo’u Sakata).

坂田家は萩焼の 始祖である李勺光(りしゃくこう)の流れをくむ家柄で、深川萩四家の一つ。深川萩四家とは現在、坂田泥華窯の他、坂倉新兵衛窯、田原陶兵衛窯、新庄助右衛門窯の四窯元がある。

The Sakata family finds its roots in the founder of Hagi ware, Li Shakuko’u, and is counted as one of the four Hagi houses of Fukagawa: the Deika Sakata kiln; the Shinbei Sakakura kiln; the To’ubei Tahara kiln; and the Suke’u’emon Shinjo’u kiln.

1950年(昭和25年)13代泥華を名のる。….  戦後の昭和萩陶芸史を語る上 で、萩焼を担う中心人物の一人で特に井戸茶碗に研鑽を積み、「泥華井戸」と称される独自の優雅な作風を確立。井戸茶碗の魅力を十分に熟知し温かみのある釉を施した茶碗などには、泥華特有の轆轤造形がある。他には焼成時に釉薬を剥ぎ取る事により御本風の柔らかい斑文を表現した剥離釉等、 新技法にも取り組んだ。

In 1950 (the 25th year of Sho’uwa), he assumed the name of 13th Deika Sakata.  (“泥華/Deika” means flowers of mud.)  ….  With respect to Hagi ware, he was one of the central figures in the Hagi pottery history during the post-war Sho’uwa period.  He especially dedicated himself to the “ido/井戸”-style chawan, and established his uniquely elegant style of ido, now known as “Deika ido.”  He fully understood the appeal of ido chawan, and created  chawan with distinct wheel-shaped forms draped with glazes that exude warmness.  He also innovated new techniques, such as selectively removing applied glazes to mimic soft and airy spots often seen in “gohon/御本” chawan.
