Sakiyama Takayuki featured in the New York Times

November 11, 2017

Ms. Mirviss, a New York dealer, specializes in Japanese ceramics. The work of Sakiyama Takayuki, who lives on the Izu peninsula, 75 miles from Tokyo- but reachable only by arduous travel- approaches nature in a traditional medium. His abstract, swirling stoneware sculptures, covered with a glaze made from local sand, reflect the movement of wind and waves in his remote habitat/ The titles of the work emphasize this: All begin with the word "Choto", which translates roughly to the echo or sound of the waves.
