Shio Kusaka adorns her ceramics with marks, grids, and stripes inscribed into the vessels themselves or delineated by color. Working primarily in white, brown, and gray, Kusaka forms the cylindrical and pear-shaped pots in occasionally counter-intuitive combinations of pattern and shape, as in dot 16 (2011), which features concentric dots on a lightly curved vessel, creating an optical quality. Kusaka’s works are distinguished by a subtly imprecise handmade aesthetic imparted by impressions of the artist’s fingers and visible glaze drips.
