Kyoko Uchida

ARTWORK

Kyoko Uchida lives and works in Yokkaichi, Mie prefecture. Inspired by vessels from the Yayoi period of prehistoric Japan as well as ancient Jordan, she creates her work using the old method of coiling. The process of coiling requires more time but gives the artist full control over the local Shigaraki clay she works with, while drawing out the integrity of the material. It also gives her work a warm and primordial silhouette.
