Opening in Eutectic’s Back Room on August 7, Akihiko Ishijima.
Mashiko ceramics have inspired artists around the world since the time of Shoji Hamada (1894 – 1978), a potter who was among the first to be designated a Living National Treasure of Japan in 1955. Japan’s 2011 earthquake may have wrecked the historic pottery town of Mashiko’s kilns, workshops and resources, but it did not destroy its artistic spirit. With the assistance of the international arts community, the potters of Mashiko have pulled together to rebuild their damaged kilns and carry on their traditions.
“I create clay work reflecting conversations within myself between the 3-dimension, trying to express with the feel of 2-dimensions. I treasure the vitality of work created by hands.”
Meet Akihiko at the opening reception on First Friday August 7th, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
