Precioso documental rodado en China, donde podemos ver/disfrutar como el maestro ceramista japonés Takeshi Yasuda prepara su última exposición en la Goldmark Gallery para celebrar su 70 aniversario. Aviso que el vídeo es largo (35min) pero ver como trabajan en la capital de la porcelana y en especial Yasuda, es simplemente genial.
Filmed on location in China, this documentary follows Takeshi Yasuda as he prepares for his 2013 ceramics exhibition at Goldmark Gallery, in celebration of his 70th birthday.
The film shows Yasuda at work in his studio in Jingdezhen, porcelain capital of China. It follows him through the street markets, the Labyrinth, and we visit the crafts-men and women whose working practices haven’t changed for centuries.
Yasuda discusses his love for clay and the challenges of working with porcelain in this intimate and moving portrait of a true artist.
“There is a relaxed confidence inherent in this work, the result of decades of innovative experimentation and dedicated work. Here now stands an exciting invitation – to wonder and to admire these miraculous, playful objects.”
