Please join us for a Potter's Talk with Yoshinori Hagiwara. Born in 1974, as the fifth generation of the Hagiwara family ceramic workshop, Yoshinori Hagiwara currently resides in Mashiko, Japan. He studied and researched at the Tochigi Prefectural Ceramics Instructional Institute, and his work has since been selected for inclusion, and has won numerous prizes, at the Japanese National Art Exhibition for multiple years. Hagiwara’s recent ceramics have broadened beyond his well-known persimmon glaze, and he has incorporated yellow kaki, blue nuka, and namijiro glaze into his artistic vocabulary. He has created his own expression through using these glazes, and exhibits great control in creating elegant forms. In 2014, Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry designated Hagiwara as a "Traditional Craftsman." His ceramics are included in significant public collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Schein Joseph Museum of Ceramic Art at Alfred University in Alfred, New York and the Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art in Haifa, Israel. His work has been exhibited by Pucker Gallery since 2010.
The exhibition, Yoshinori Hagiwara: Ceramics, will be held from 29 April through 28 May at Pucker Gallery.
