Chito Kuroda's Profile
My work is characterized by simple clean surfaces with subtle outlines and a delicate colour glaze. All my work is porcelain and made on a wheel.
My practice is informed by the Japanese theory of "Wabi Sabi". This code values the quality of simple plain objects, where beauty is seen in imperfection.
Employing just one often-pale colour glaze on a smooth surface my work is austere and minimal. I consciously leave finger marks on my pieces as a decorative statement of authorship that observes my humble philosophy.
My work has been published in "500 Bowls", "Making and Installing Handmade Tiles" as well as having been a guest showing my work on the ITV program "This Morning", rock musician Pete Doherty is the proud owner of one of my pieces.
