境知子 / Tomoko Sakai

Tomoko Sakai

Tomoko Sakai is an artist who mainly creates smooth and soft white works with porcelain clay, as well as ambitious works that make use of the layered texture of mud and soil. Originally, Tomoko made earthenware by open burning, but after encountering the Lee Dynasty white porcelain during her training period, she has devoted herself to white porcelain.

The work is baked in a downdraft wood-fired kiln that features a gentle flow of flame. A point to see the gentle kiln change.

It is characterized by high-quality works that combine both supreme technology and organic kindness.

At FOOD FOR THOUGHT, white porcelain works, especially standing ones and bag ones, are extremely popular.
