“Summer Grasses” series is a rather subdued set of raku vases with natural bamboo handles, gathered and seasoned from the artist's own garden. There are three of them, however, each stands as an individual sculpture, with its own personality. It borrows its quiet esthetics from Chinese brush painting and from the Japanese, the minimal application of color. In fact, it can almost be viewed as a black-on-white brush painting on clay. “Summer Grasses has its own story to tell. My inspiration is from the well-known Japanese Haiku poet, Basho (1644 - 1694). His most famous poem affected me deeply and this series came out of it.”
