Intro
Andrea Müller shows her work at the Bayerischer Kunstgewerbeverein in Munich. She creates vessels that integrate typical Japanese form and aesthetics and transformed it into a West-East symbiosis. Its characteristic is the work with the old Japanese firing technique raku.

Artist list

Andrea Müller
Raku, an old Japanese firing technique dating back to the 16th century, was originally used to make tea bowls for the tea ceremony. The vessels are fired on sight in an open fire at approx. 1000 degrees. Afterward, they are taken out of the kiln with a long pair of tongs and immediately placed in wood chips to reduce. The typical craquelé is created by the massive temperature change and the subsequent reduction.
Tong marks and randomness in the glaze flow ennoble the vessel and make it unique. Andrea Müller, who has been working with raku for more than 30 years, uses the "deliberate imperfection" of this experimental firing technique, to venture along the fine line from vessel to sculpture. Her vessel forms such as sphere, egg, and cylinder, eruptively turned, integrate typical Japanese form and aesthetics into a West-East symbiosis.
