Artist Bio

Sakiyama TakayukiSakiyama’s carved and rippling surface patterns reinforce the spiraling nature of his double-walled vessels. Form and surface work together to yield objects that are sensuous, bold and seamless. Some vessels appear as if made from sand on the beach, simply created by the current of the receding water. Others appear to undulate and twist in space as if in perpetual motion. His most recent stoneware creations from the series Chōtō- Listening to the Waves, are intended to evoke the power and sublime nature of the ocean and its currents. Intricately carved and finished with his unique sand glaze developed, his works remain true to their origins as functional vessels while conveying a highly sculptural quality.
