Taja

Love Bird TJ64Y527

Windowsill sculpture

This diminutive sculpture is hand-built in porcelain. Taja takes inspiration for each sculpture from the shapes of small porcelain off-cuts and lets the nature of the material and his imagination lead him. The watery quality of the blue glaze is the result of extensive glaze testing and reduction firing.

About this maker

Taja came over to UK from his native country Japan to study oil painting and settled in Devon over 40 years ago. He was inspired by so many potters in the south west, so he started making pots using his friend’s pottery workshop. He is largely self-taught. He found that slab and coil built pottery suits him the most. He started experimenting with porcelain clay about 20 years ago after being inspired by enormous blue porcelain wall tiles at a new Japanese airport especially the water-like quality of the blue glaze.
