Kosho Ito

I recently read an article about Japanese artist, Kosho Ito. A retrospective is currently up in the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, following a previous retrospective at the Ibaraki Ceramic Art Museum. This is my very first introduction to Kosho Ito, who is a visionary in the world of ceramic art and, sadly, someone I feel I should have already known about. Please take the time to read the article from the Japan Times. It's very interesting and not too long. The area of Ito's work I find most fascinating is the freezing technique he uses to provoke a unique crystallization effect in the clay and slip he uses. I would love to know more about that.
