Niisato Akio is known globally for his contemporary designs employing the technique known as hotarude, in which holes are made in a white porcelain base formed on the wheel, and clear glaze poured in before firing, to create a pattern that is revealed when light shines through the holes. For DOMANI 2021, in addition to intricate designs of the sort only possible in porcelain, Niisato will present a group of works that showcase a bolder side of the process used to produce porcelain vessels.
