Shozo Michikawa (JAPAN)

Shozo Michikawa

Shozo Michikawa’s works have been called haikus in clay : ‘… my partner is nature itself and I need to get along well with it otherwise the result will be unsatisfactory. All I do in the process is to give a little helping hand to the ever transforming clay to assist the way it wants to go.’ Born in Hokkaido, north Japan, in 1953, Shozo Michikawa is one of Japan’s leading ceramicists and has exhibited worldwide. He studied at Aoyama Gakuin University from where he graduated in 1975, and now lives and works in Seto, Aichi. He will be demonstrating his throwing techniques, particularly in making triangular and square forms.
