About the Maker
Takemura Yoshinori's whimsical and improvisational style goes happily along with the vast variety of colour he conjures. All his works are porcelain, which he "dresses up with glaze", focusing on "finding the right dress to fit the form". He enjoys these one-off sessions.
Although his works seem to be totally free from any ceramic tradition in Japan, Takemura has a highly expert background of Japanese applied arts. Before turning a full time maker, he has worked as a restorer of artefacts using various traditional techniques, including art of Japanese lacquer.
Takemura is a graduate of Musashino Art University, and completed M.A. of 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.
