Modern Earthenware and Stoneware
Following traditional methods, potter, Juba Tenshin creates functional and decorative ceramics from his home-studio in the lush mountain hill-side of Kobe, Japan. Here, Juba has all he needs - clay for moulding and natural resources he turns into glazes for painting.
Every piece is hand-formed, not cast resulting in a one-of-a-kind shape. To finish, patterns are poured onto the surface from liquid mud “slip” that is applied onto the surface or combed through with pine needles.
Materials such as rice straws and chestnut husks re-purposed into ash to create ash glaze which adds a smooth, glassy finish to some of his pieces.
Chariots on Fire exclusively represents Juba Tenshin in the USA.
