HISTORY OF ARTISTIC POTTERY

HISTORY OF ARTISTIC POTTERY

Bernard Leach, born in Hong Kong is the main figure in the history of ceramics. He is considered to be the creator of the identity of potters and artists around the world. Leach wrote a book "A Potter's Book" which as the first potter's book focused much more on art than on technology. Bernard Leach was a representative of Japanese values ​​in ceramic art and believed that defects on ceramics reflect the uniqueness of ceramics and hand-made. According to him, imperfection has human value. This aspect, the human aspect can also be seen in HIGH BLUE collection. Several previously used elements are used here to create multi-panel skirts, t-shirts, dresses and jackets. These improved and changed details resemble the Japanese patchwork "Burro" techniques. In addition, manual work turns into the quality of workmanship. Both, the philosophy of Bernard Leach and HIGH BLUE, appreciate the skills of workers, traditional crafts and a human touch.
