Yushi Ishibashi

ISHIBASHI has taken the sandblast technique normally applied to glass, and turned it upon his ceramics, and thus entered a new world of possibilities. The base is seihakuji (pale blue porcelain) and the blast effect is applied in three layers. The gradation created by each different depth is very beautiful.
