Takuro Kuwata

Born in Hiroshima, Japan, 1981, and Lives and works in Toki City, Gifu, Japan The young artist Takuro Kuwata makes 'dysfunctional' yet oddly elegant clay objects. Leaving much to chance, the surfaces are thickly glazed to literally explode when baked in the kiln. Kuwata's goal is to “create joyful and fun works, by making the most use of the characteristics of the materials”. By exploring, yet breaking the rules of ceramics, Kuwata has become one of the most intriguing young artists transforming the media today.
