An eighth generation Hagi potter, Kaneta Masanao has expanded beyond his hefty heritage to create a more sculptural oeuvre. Perhaps due to Kaneta's training as a sculptural artist, his forms have a strong and dramatic presence that sets them apart from the works by other artists of this traditional ceramic center. Using the centuries-old Hagi white-pink glazes, Kaneta creates unique and readily identifiable functional and non-functional sculptural forms. His signature technique of kurinuki, in which he digs or scoops-out a form out of the clay instead of shaping it on a wheel, further allows him to boldly depart from ancient Hagi traditions. b
