Get to Know Saori M Stoneware

I am a ceramic artist and contemporary artist who was born and raised in Japan. While studying contemporary sculpture at an art university in Tokyo, I was drawn to the world of ceramics and acquired knowledge and skills in pottery. through self-study. My ceramic works have been influenced by my research on contemporary sculpture, including Brancusi, as well as Japanese art movements such as Mono-ha and Mingei movement.

In ceramics, I specialize in creating works using techniques like Nerikomi and Neriage, primarily on the potter's wheel. I strive to break free from existing rules, constantly seeking inspiration from both the new and the old, and continuously challenging myself. My goal is to bring art into everyday homes, coexisting harmoniously with lives.

Q: How would you describe your work to potential buyers?
A: Among ceramics made using the Nerikomi or Neriage technique, I believe these pieces are unique in the design and have a taste that you have not seen before. Some of my works are particular creations in which the glaze is exposed from the clay body, and are worth collecting.
