Autumn Festival

Morino Hiroaki 森野泰明 Japanese

Not on view

Morino Hiroaki is renowned for creating bold ceramic forms that can stand alone as sculpture or be used as functional vessels. A Kyoto ceramist, he was trained by Living National Treasure Tomimoto Kenkichi (1886–1963). He draws inspiration from the rich heritage of the city and also from the Western modernist art he encountered while teaching at the University of Chicago in the 1960s. Most of his works are handbuilt and double glazed, with combinations of vividly colored glazes.
