John Ikeda: Plate


John’s current line of works consists of wood fired pieces. Wood firing an ancient firing technique in Japan shows the effects of the firing process on the surface of the clay. Each piece is hand crafted and will slightly vary in colour, pattern, size, and weight.

Care & Use: Generally high temperature stoneware is extremely durable within all contexts. However, with the fine surface particles it may protrude or flake off through incomplete fusion. As such is the underlying nature of geology and chemistry. Please handle objects with care and hand wash.

About The Artist

John Ikeda

In 1971, John established a studio pottery in Lethbridge, Alberta shortly after graduation from the University of Lethbridge, with a BA in Fine Arts.  Creating functional pottery and sculpture in high-fired stoneware and porcelain in his studio in 1978, he moved east and established his current studio in St. Bernardin, Ontario. Set in a rural setting close to nature, the adventure of acquiring unfamiliar practical skills of carpentry plumbing electrical mechanics arboriculture horticulture and firewood processing is a challenge for the artist.  However, it is rewarding for the goal of self-reliance and seeking a meaningful personal integration in the creation of a life and of art.
