Guest Book

An exquisite work of layered pottery by challenging female artist Fukumoto Fuku enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Tsuki no Shimo (Moon Frost) and date to 2017. The clear white glaze certainly is like moonlight, and something about the impact of the form into multiple forms calls to mind an asteroid strikeing ground. It is both calm and alive with movement at the same time.
Size, D 15.3 cm H 8.9 cm
Condition, Excellent
Fukumoto Fuku was born into a family of textilie artists in Kyoto in 1973. She graduated advanced studies at the Kyoto Municipal University Of Arts in 1997. Like many other of the younger generation of artists, she tends toward smaller venues than the large affiliated shows. She garnered attention first with her award at the Asahi Gendai Kogeiten Modern Craft Exhibition in 2001. She was quickly picked up and her work has since been seen in galleries around the world. Wok by her is held in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Kyoto among others.
