ARTIST BIOGRAHY
Yukiya Izumita
With chamotte mixed into the clay and finished using copper glaze, these works are characterized by their texture which possesses an ancient warmth. In the 'Layer' series, he utilizes paper during the modeling process. They express the strength and fragility of clay. Since his hometown was destroyed during the 2011 tsunami, he has added unique curved lines and movement in his works.

From the age of twenty-six, studied the local kokuji-ware style of pottery under the kokuji-ware master Gakuho Shimodake. Kokuji-ware is produced in Kuji City, using local clay with tohakuyu (white glaze) and ameyu (caramel glaze) to produce works characterized by their simplicity. The majority of works are everyday items for use in the home and won acclaim from YANAGI Soetsu (1889-1961), who founded the mingei undo (folk crafts movement) in the 1920s.


Ever since has produced creative objets d'art as well as new forms of vase.
