Aaron Scythe

Aaron Scythe

Aaron Scythe worked as a slip caster in Auckland 1986.  He then trained at Carrington Polytech in 1988 and East Sydney Polytech in 1989 where he developed an interest in Momoyama pots. In 1993 whilst working at Sturt Craft Centre in Mittagong, NSW Australia, Scythe built an Anagama kiln and began investigating Shino glazes. 

In 1995 Scythe travelled to Japan to study the Minoyaki style of pottery.  Since 1997 and up until 2011 he had been based in Mashiko, Japan. During this period he developed Oribe and Kizeto ware, built another Anagama kiln to produce Shino ware and began making porcelain work. Whilst in Japan Scythe had over 60 solo shows and participated in many group shows and workshops. 

Due to the Fukushima meltdown in 2011 Scythe and his family relocated to New Zealand. He is currently based in Whanganui.

He is inspired by the Maori prophets and that's coming through in his work, which has evolved since his return from Japan.

And he is keen to see his creations get used.  "Traditional Japanese customers collect things but don't use them. I want people to use and understand them and think of it as beautiful. A lot of people buy work and don't use it. I don't like that. Use the thing. It's meant to be used."
