I am a Silver Division Tray. Divide and conquer.
This tray really showcases the Japanese tatara technique of hand forming slabs of clay that Tajimi city, Ando-san's birth place, is known for in the world of ceramics. When I first saw this piece, I loved it for its hand made qualities, imperfections and irregular edges. Just an observation, as with all of Ando-san's 'Division Series' trays, we feel like the pieces really shine when some of the sections are left empty.
Silver Division Tray was curated by Stevenson Aung.
