The art of carving with Haruya Abe

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, an updated video that demonstrates his ‘honeycomb’ scraping technique, is by Hanada. The longer carved lines form Shinogi ridges.
