Among sophisticated collectors and informed curators, the single most sought-after Japanese clay artist is the extraordinarily gifted Fujikasa Satoko. Both visually and emotionally stirring, her powerful and enormously dynamic sculptures have captivated museum-going audiences on three continents. Flouting the medium from which they have been created, these seemingly light-as-air, highly evocative forms have become captivating must-see works prominently installed in major art museums such as the Musée Cernuschi, Paris; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; and Walters Art Museum, Baltimore.
Her sculptures “operate as metaphors for ( or embodiments of) all kinds of fluid motions from the flow of water to fluttering drapery to the unfolding of petals. The only constant is the material – stoneware with a translucent matte glaze.”
