This piece of work blurs the lines between image and sculpture. It represents Inatomi's contemplative approach to space and serves as a physical connection to his work as a multidisciplinary artist. You can observe how he delicately carved out the outlines of vessels using a combination of ceramics and pencil producing a quiet image, full of sentiment and poetry.
About the Artist
Junsuke Inatomi is a highly accomplished ceramic artist who creates elegant hand-built vessels that transform and modulate in different lights. He spends his days in his rural studio in Osaka, following a devoted ritual of shaping and firing clay in a white formula. Inatomi's work explores the profundity of clay as a raw medium, and he believes that its yearning for beauty transcends the timeline of one's own life.
Inatomi's work is renowned for its unique antique patina and exceptional silver glazes that adapt to their use. The resulting pieces have gentle materiality and soft forms, often praised for their warmth and kindness.
