House in a chestnut forest

H18, 28 x 28cm
Stoneware, glazes and wood ashes

The sculpture evokes the Haniwa terracotta houses, utilized in rituals and interred with the deceased as funerary items during Japan's Kofun period (3rd to 6th centuries AD). It is crafted using the SUE ceramic techniques of the Kofun period, with portions covered in ash glaze. During firing, this glaze partially melted, creating drips on the surface of the ceramic pieces.
