Takuro Kuwata 桑田卓郎
Japanese, b. 1981
Follow

Takuro Kuwata is a radical potter who nevertheless describes his work as firmly grounded within the traditions of ceramics. His focus is to push the potential of his materials, while referencing traditional forms and making functional objects. He is known for a number of experimental procedures, including adding stones to his clay mix so that when fired, they burst or puncture the clay structure, or using needles to catch the glaze of a vessel so that it creates a bumpy texture when fired. He thus leaves the final form of the work to chance, but is careful to ensure that each piece is still functional. Kuwata’s works are also known for their saturated and intense color combinations. The artist tends to favor red, blue, and metallic gold and silver.
