Hayashi Hideyuki was born in Kyoto in 1937, and graduated the Kyoto Municipal University of Art Sculpture division in 1959. He exhibited in a number of local and National Competitions and exhibitions including the Nikkakai and Sodeisha, garnering much acclaim, including the governor’s prize at the second Nihon Togei Ten National Ceramics Exhibition in 1973 and has been selected on many occasions for international exhibition. Toh devoted an entire volume to this influential artist (Toh,vol. 41 1992). Work by him is held in the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo and National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, Bertrand Museum in France, Kure City Museum and Museum of Modern Art in Wakayama among others. .
