Kurosabi Vase

Artist: Motomu Oyama
13,500 yen ($124.43 USD)

Motomu Oyama works with iron, creating abstract sculptural objects, as well as utensils, vessels and hand-built stands and desk lamps. Oyama uses the properties of iron and age old methods to create textures and aged patinas on his iron pieces.

Iron powder adds texture to this vase which is later finished using a traditional technique that burns bees wax to the base of the metal. The wax acts as an inhibitor to protect the iron and prevent further rusting.
