ARTISTS / 瀧知子 TAKI Tomoko

IMG_6491 (1).jpeg

Taki Tomoko (b. 1988) primarily engages in ceramic art creation in the Kansai region of Japan. Her works prioritise humour, uniqueness, and unconventional expressions. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted from conception to firing. When Takiko first started exploring ceramics, she held the preconceived notion that ceramic works were primarily intended for specific purposes and carried functional imagery, such as bowls and plates. However, she later came to understand that ceramics, like painting and other art forms, can be approached from imaginative and free-thinking perspectives, resulting in more delightful creations and practical forms. This realisation has inspired her in recent years to shift away from the emphasis on functional craftsmanship and to pursue the creation of works that incorporate subjective thinking and offer visual enjoyment.
