Artist Bio

Sakiyama TakayukiSakiyama’s carved and rippling surface patterns reinforce the surging, spiraling nature of his remarkable double-walled vessels –– form and surface influence the other, and work together to yield objects that are sensuous, bold and seamless. Some vessels appear as if made from sand on the beach, the surface simply decorated by the current of the receding water. Others appear to undulate and twist in space as if in perpetual motion. His work has been selected for the exhibition posters at both the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Musée National de Céramiques, Sèvres.
