An exhibition of new ceramic sculptures by Shozo Michikawa. Michikawa lives and works in Seto - an area rich in ceramic traditions. His works combine traditional Japanese techniques and aesthetics with a modern energy and vigour.
Michikawa will also be a demonstrator at this year’s Aberystwyth International Ceramics Festival.
Though his techniques are diverse, Michikawa always strives to create ‘functional’ pieces. He writes "no matter how styles change I always insist on creating pieces that can actually be used. Pottery was originally an integral part of people's lives.”
