Biography

Japanese artist Fujikasa Satoko creates her fluid and dynamic sculptures from the coarse and pliable clay of Shigaraki. They are all hand built by slowly melding slender coils of clay, requiring months to complete a single work. Due to the extraordinary thinness of the sculptures’ walls, some as thin as three millimeters, controlling the drying time is the most difficult aspect of her technique. Though only in her thirties, Fujikasa has received international attention and acclaim for her work.
