Yobitsugi style winter bowl
Yobitisugi, or borrowed-patches process, aligns with the contemporary Japanese Basara style. Aaron pieces porcelain and stoneware shard shapes together utilising the sentiment and beauty of kintsugi, the Japanese art of repair. This method illustrates his exuberant take on the wabi-sabi philosophy of the 16th-century Momoyama period.
Aaron's work reflects both his New Zealand and Māori heritage and his passion for Japanese ceramic traditions. He spent many years living in Japan studying under the avant-garde, contemporary ceramic artist Koie Ryōiji.
