aki moriuchi

AKI MORIUCHI was born in Tokyo, Japan, but started to study ceramics once she settled in Britain. The greater part of her work was (Aki no longer pots) thrown on the wheel, after which she altered the form. 'Weathered' surfaces are achieved by multiple layers of glazes and successive high temperature firings, with sandblasting technique. She produced works in a studio in London and in 2003 moved to a studio in St.Ives Cornwall.

Artist's Statement

"Over the years, I have been brought into the landscape of stones, both physically and spiritually. I have followed the trails through the plains, mountains and desserts, and have seen that time weathered the surface of stones. I imagine what kind of life these stones have led. This journey had begun even without my knowledge.

It is this essence of time, contained inside the stones, that I am trying to capture in my work. I want my work to contain certain imaginative space and ambiguity."
