Takuro Kuwata

The contemporary artist Takuro Kuwata was born in Hiroshima, Japan. He graduated from Kyoto Saga Art College, Department of Fine Arts, Ceramics Arts in 2001. His ‘dysfunctional’ and yet oddly elegant clay objects are easy to recognize. The surfaces are thickly glazed to literally explode when baked in the kiln. One of his signatures — leave much to a chance.

‘Besides being just colorful, I fundamentally aim to create a work in which the viewer feels ‘something’ from it. I want them to lean in to see my work questioning ‘What’s this?!’

Kuwata aims 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.

Takuro Kuwata describes his work as firmly grounded within the traditions of ceramics. His focus is to push the potential of his materials while referencing traditional forms and making functional objects. 

He is known for a number of experimental procedures, including adding stones to his clay mix so that when fired, they burst or puncture the clay structure, or using needles to catch the glaze of a vessel so that it creates a bumpy texture when fired.
