Ikuko Iwamoto: New Ashgate Gallery, Surrey

Ikuko-Iwamoto-New-Ashgate-Gallery,

Ceramic sculpture and tableware by the quirky and critically acclaimed Japanese ceramic artist Ikuko Iwamoto.

Ikuko Iwamoto, Large Sake Jugs. New Ashgate Gallery,  IKUKO Iwamoto, Nucleolus pofu teapots, New Ashgate Gallery

Ikuko says: “I make exquisite cups and other objects for a bizarre tea ceremony. They suggest the everyday, the ordinary, but are in fact extra-ordinary. They are the vehicle to make visible an invisible, microscopic world. A world of intricacy and detail, of mathematical pattern and organic chaos, of beauty and repulsion.”

There is a Japanese theme in ceramics as we also in the Spring Collection that will show Chito Kuroda and Namiko Murakoshi, curated by Yuka Kikumoto.

 A quote from a collector of Ikuko’s work:

“I now own three of Ikuko’s pieces and each is a delight, they fit with each other and they fit in my living space. I love neutrality when its not a wall flower, that is neutral enough to fit varying context but bold enough to make a statement. Ikuoko’s vessels look like they have crawled out of the sea, obviously inspired by urchins, octopus and rocks. Smooth versus speckled and organically dinted, the forms are so tactile but incredibly delicate, you have to touch but at the same time you are reluctant because of their fragility. Right I’m gonna go and stroke my vessel.”
