The Blue Ribbon of Kazuma Sambe for Whale Soda, who also has Goldfish and Tuna Soda, takes on commericalism and marketing. Current work on Goldfish Smoothie underglazes on Amador clay, pretty thin, ten pound fish pieces. Vertical Japanese writing as advertisements explain the value of Whale Soda. Japanese orthography seems closer to the ideograms that originate the alphabet. Mine have no intellect dimension,surprising maybe in a writer, opposite from clay, never designed. From the moment. Kazuma called this an unconscious technique opposite his own. (See Unconscious Origins here). The unconscious is only ever known by looking back on its leavings, so the insight belongs to the viewer, not vested in an idea of the telling. Immediately current, a porcelain emperor is to have a hat, but not a Pope's Hat suggesting Antichrist, religion and state joined. So no hat at all. Myths lend significance. A recent story, What a Dog Coyote Sings AI-AI-OO-OO and
Other Visions of Iisaw, a tail off of Overflights of Pedro Escadero, was built consciously line by line, sound by sound over 20 years.The clay exhibits are a working meditation finished in a few hours over seven days, compose and dry four days, bisque one day, glaze two days, then final fire. Here are some pics of the exhibition.
