Sakiyama Takayuki

These elegant stoneware are the works of Japanese ceramist, Sakiyama Takayuki. The artist graduated from Osaka Art College and set up a studio and built a special kiln on the west coast of Japan. On Beautiful People Liveart he says this about his work:

“All of my work is inspired by the sea, especially the natural curve created by the waves. When I was in junior high school I knew I had to find a way to be an artist and live by the sea. For three years after graduating from Osaka Art University, I traveled throughout Japan looking for an inspiring ocean view to set up my studio. I found that ideal spot on the west coast of the Izu Peninsula”.

The artist does not currently have a website but you can see more of his work at Mirviss Gallery.
