Shoko Teruyama

Sep 6th - Sep 29th, 2013

Japanese artist Shoko Teruyama’s hand-built boxes, bowls, vases and serving pieces are inspired by sacred spaces and ceremonial objects and made of earthenware with white slip and sgraffito decoration. Her work is whimsical, but reveals itself to be something more devious and interesting. “I create characters based on human relations and things I have experienced,” says Teruyama. “To me it is much easier to draw owls than humans.”
