The art of carving by Haruya Abe

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDhFz9aypdg

By carving simple yet elegant patterns into pottery, Japanese ceramicist Haruya Abe has created a beautiful line of handmade dishware and a large instagram following. His account features short videos of his diligent work. The video above is by Washoku Guide:

The surface of the clay is scraped away to form Shinogi ridges, carved line by line. Beautiful patterns that stand out from the surface are made by a technique called Yokoku, which means a relief. The patterns are first carved into the mold, then applied by pressing tableware that has been shaped on a potter’s wheel. Abe’s reliefs are known for being particularly detailed and intricate.
