貫入という言葉があります。釉薬の表面におきた小さなヒビ割れのことです。
このヒビ割れに茶渋などが入りこむことで、使い込まれた風合いがでてきます。
ヒビ手の器は貫入の風合いを化粧土で表現したものですが、
土自身が反応して起こす自然なヒビの風合いに面白味を感じています。
器の表情に自然と土とが織り成した痕跡があることに、たまらなく魅力を感じているのかもしれません。

Message from Atsushi Ogata
There is a word Kannyu in Japanese which means small cracks appear on the surface of glaze.As some stains or tea incrustation are left inside of these cracks, the tableware gradually gets a distinctive well-kept atmosphere.My work called Hibite is the expression of engobe having a feeling of cracks.The cracks as a gift of natural reactions of clay and engobe themselves attract me. I might be irresistibly drawn to  the trace of natures blessing, the reaction of fire and soil, on crackled face.
