  • Every ceramicist is a sort of chemist, but Takemura Yoshinori is also an alchemist.  His whimsical and improvisational style goes happily along with the vast variety of colours he conjures. More than 60 distinctive glazing colours are up his sleeve.
    All his pieces are porcelain, which he "dresses up with glaze", focusing on "finding the right outfit to match each form".  He enjoys these one-off sessions. Naturally, each piece is unique and one of a kind.

    Although Takemura's works seem to be totally free from any ceramic tradition, he has a highly expert background in Japanese applied arts.  Before turning to full time making, Takemura had worked as a restorer of artefacts using historical techniques, including the art of Japanese lacquer (Kintsugi).

    Takemura is a graduate of Musashino Art University, and went on to complete a master's degree in Conservation and Restoration at Tokyo University of the Arts.  Based in Chiba where he grew up, he holds regular workshops, punctuated by his own exhibitions at both domestic and overseas galleries.
