All vases are handmade and one of a kind. The glazes are made out of ashes Joris-Jan Bos finds. These ceramic pieces can be used as vases, sake pitcher or water bottles. May you get creative about it's purpose.
With the glazing techniques Joris discovered an exciting game full of surprises. Creating and developing his own different recipes and applications are his passion. The (birch) ash from the fire stove from his house in Italy for example, gives a magnificent blue-explosion in the glaze. Or the rust black colour from the ’Temmoku’ glazes is a journey of endless research to develop. Another glaze which interests him is the ‘Shino’ glaze, which is translated as-‘ white, freshly fallen snow’.
Joris-Jan Bos, creator and initiator of 3TREES, became passionate about handmade ceramics when visiting Japan in 2002, and later in 2004 with an art exchange project between The Netherlands and Japan. Inspired by the ancient Japanese Philosophy Wabi-Sabi, that is fostering and respecting the beauty of imperfection and transience, and by Miles Davis, whom Joris admires as an artist playing so instinctively that he never played a note too much. Both made him seek for this within his work and his pottery. The Japanese influence shows in his work nowadays. Joris creates unique pieces in which he tries to catch their soul.
