Kondo Takahiro often works with the color blue. He's following in the footsteps of his Living National Treasure (LNT) grandfather Kondo Yuzo who was named a LNT for his work in sometsuke or cobalt blue. Yet the younger Kondo is far from just imitating grandpa, he's created his own technique that has the works coming out of the kiln looking wet! The "rain frozen through fire" effect is droplets of pure silver that Kondo applies before firing. A few pieces he recently exhibited in New York City had a deep indigo blue color with these silver beads studded on the surface - quite spectacular stuff.
