器の町の暮らし

PHOTOGRAPH /21 December 2020

東京から車で2時間半ほど、メインストリートが数キロほどの小さな益子町、

ここには世界から建築家や現代美術家、クラフト作家が訪ねてくる特殊な場所だ。

ここに暮らす人は美しく豊かに暮らしている。

京都のACE HOTELなどのテーブルなども手掛けた木工作家の高山英樹さんの家は、益子町のはずれ、田んぼの畦道の先にぽつんとある。

ここはご自分で1から建て、

今は山や畑の開拓をしながらも

LAやサンフランシスコなどで展示もされる作家生活をされていて、その暮らしの景色は美しいものに囲まれ自由な時間が泣かれている。

今回、奥さまの純子さんが益子を代表する成井窯で陶芸をされる様子を記録させていただきました。

Mashiko Town, a small town about two and a half hours drive from Tokyo and a few kilometers from the main street

This is a special place visited by architects, contemporary artists and craft writers from all over the world.

The people who live here live beautifully and affluently.

The house of Hideki Takayama, a woodworker who also worked on tables such as ACE HOTEL in Kyoto, is located on the outskirts of Mashiko Town, at the end of the rice field ridge.

Build this from scratch yourself,

Now while cultivating mountains and fields

He lives as a writer who is exhibited in LA and San Francisco, and the scenery of his life is surrounded by beautiful things and his free time is crying.

This time, I recorded how his wife, Junko, is doing pottery in the Narii kiln, which represents Mashiko.
